In this week’s application assignment, we were given this scenario:
A training manager has been frustrated with the quality of communication among trainees in his face-to-face training sessions and wants to try something new. With his supervisor’s permission, the trainer plans to convert all current training modules to a blended learning format, which would provide trainees and trainers the opportunity to interact with each other and learn the material in both a face-to-face and online environment. In addition, he is considering putting all of his training materials on a server so that the trainees have access to resources and assignments at all times.
With respect to the scenario given, I formulated a best practices guide for this trainer to follow when converting his program to a distance learning format. This checklist could assist the trainer in facilitating communication and learning among his training managers, trainers, and trainees.
Having some kind of guide is very critical to ensure this form of teaching integrates well with existing practices.A7MorrisW
