We are excited to be at the forefront of a growing trend in Caregiver Training. Over the past few months, we’ve logged a surprising number of new and established care providers who reach out to us every day to request a subscription to our “Blended Learning Plan.”
Why the sudden interest in Blended Learning?
The culture of caregiver training is shifting — again. The first shift came about ten years ago when e-learning became the “shiny, new penny.” Caregiver supervisors saw e-learning as the answer to many of their training problems. It was cheaper, more efficient, and more convenient for learners.
And e-learning is STILL all of those things. E-learning has served as a vital bridge between the past and the future of caregiver training. But, now we know it’s not the only (and sometimes not the best) way to train all caregivers in all subjects.
In healthcare, there will always be times when instructor-led, classroom training is the best solution. Your caregivers need specific, hands-on training in a supportive environment where they can ask questions, receive feedback, and enjoy the camaraderie of connecting with their peers.
So how do you combine the cost efficiency and convenience of e-learning with the need for hands-on training, personalized support and beneficial team building that comes with instructor-lead training?
A Blended Learning Plan is the solution!
What is Blended Learning? A blended learning plan is a strategy that uses a combination of traditional classroom training with online learning. The mix or “blend” of training strategies is where the magic happens!
A blended approach gives you options. Topics that require hands-on demonstration can be taught in the classroom, while others can be assigned online. For example, you may choose to assign an e-learning module on “Common GI Disorders.” Then, follow up with an instructor-led demonstration in “Ostomy Care.” A blended plan means you’re not stuck with just one delivery method!
