THE COMMUNITY FOR MODERN BLENDED LEARNING

Current Learning Campaign

Laying the Foundation: Instructional Design for Blended Learning
Start Date: June 5, 2017

Slider 02

Each month, the Blended Learning Hub tackles a new topic like microlearning, gamification, or social/collaborative design. And, we connect each topic so you know how they relate to one another; enabling you to quickly make the correct design choices.

Each formal learning campaign is four weeks in duration; beginning on the first Monday of the month. Going well beyond the basics of the topic, we explore multiple practice areas relevant to learning, including:

  • Design treatments and techniques
  • Development tools and learning technologies
  • Skillsets for modern learning professionals
  • Influencing mindsets and impacting the learning culture
  • The business of learning
  • The future of learning
