Organizations have adopted training technologies as a way to maximize training opportunities while minimizing costs. After a decade of ineffective programs, organizations are looking for instructional design techniques to create blended programs that meet, or even exceed, the results achieved in more traditional settings.
Trending in the blended learning design space are two concepts: how to "flip the classroom" to maximize valuable collaboration time, and how to apply the latest thinking on Bloom's Digital Taxonomy to determine how best to deliver content in this new environment. This session will examine both of these concepts and their relationship to blended learning. The application of these concepts will make your training programs as impactful as possible, and help you get the most of your technology investments.
In this session, techniques will be shared which will help you to:
- Map learning objectives to the appropriate technologies using a modern application of Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning.
- "Flip the classroom" to create a modern blended experience
- Expand your personal learning network so you can get the information you need to plan for future programs.
