About the Event
Effectively Embedding Blended Learning
This session will share experiences of how Heart of Worcestershire College introduced an institution-wide blended learning strategy over 10 years ago and has since incepted the National Blended Learning Consortium of over 160 member colleges. The session will also focus on how further education institutions can expand blended learning and the options available for extending this type of learning to become an integral part of the curriculum using the HoW College Elements blended learning programme as an example which has been designed to develop 21st century skills of learners through a blended modality.
