It may be tempting to abandon classroom training altogether for online learning.
It’s cheaper, more efficient, and more convenient for supervisors.
But, e-learning is not the only (and sometimes not the best)
way to train all caregivers in all subjects.
Your caregivers occasionally 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 convenience of e-learning with the need for hands-on training, personalized support, and beneficial teambuilding that comes with instructor-led training?
The answer lies in “Blended Learning.”
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!
The key to running a successful blended learning plan is knowing which topics require hands-on learning, and which are more suitable for independent, online learning. For
- You may choose to assign an e-learning module on “Common GI Disorders.” Then, follow up with an instructor-led demonstration in “Ostomy Care.”
- Or, you might schedule your team to complete an e-learning module on Fall Risk Factors, then follow up with a live, classroom session on Performing Safe Transfers.
A blended plan means you’re not stuck with just one delivery method!
