The Real Story: Blended Learning.

Brandon Hall Research has just published a new report.

The Real Story: Blended Learning.
By author Janet Clarey, Sr. Researcher, Brandon Hall Research.

This report is written differently than other reports they have written. For this report, they have collaborated with experts and practitioners, in both the corporate and higher education sectors, to provide you with a rigorous and comprehensive view of blended learning.
Contributing authors:

Ya-Ting Teng, Curtis J. Bonk, Kyong-Jee Kim, Eun Jung Oh, Su Jin Son, Tingting Zeng, and Jingli Cheng provide key findings from a research survey study of HR professionals worldwide to answer how blended learning is addressed in a strategic plan, how the strategies are distributed and practiced, and what advice learning professionals need regarding blended learning. Their findings include projections of organizational spending and needs around strategic planning. They encourage you to share your innovative designs as models and applications of blended learning evolve.

Bill Bruck and Paul Schneider write about the gap between traditional instructor-led programs and e-learning programs and provide examples of how blended learning might be used to reduce time to proficiency or even to serve as a catalyst to bridge the knowledge management gap.

Jim Bertelsen provides an example of blended learning as a default condition, a way to enable lifelong, authentic learning. He provides examples at the university level and the corporate level and outlines new channels and enablers of blended learning.

Michael Sunnarborg provides a snapshot of his experience with blended learning in the corporate environment. In working within blended learning environments at The University of Phoenix, Allen Interactions, and Target, he provides a snapshot of how blended learning impacts the learning professional.

B. Unnikrishnan provides a glimpse of innovative initiatives of blended learning from rural India. While we don’t often discuss physical conditions, population issues, and reach in rural areas, doing so can help us gain an understanding of a broader definition of blended learning.
