From the Back Cover


In The Other Blended Learning, Diann Wilson and Ellen Smilanich explain how to successfully blend a variety of learning methods—including mentoring, coaching, on-the-job training, and e-learning—around classroom-delivered content. Blended learning is most often associated with e-learning, but this "other" blend shows how to maximize the classroom experience to aid learning transfer and improve performance.

Written in an easy-to-use format, The Other Blended Learning offers a practical guide for understanding and implementing a successful blended learning approach in any organization no matter what its size or mission. Starting out with the classroom as the core component for training, this book explains how other learning methods can support and supplement what is learned and includes

  • Succinct definitions and explanations of the vital components of a blended learning program
  • Six steps for creating an effective blended learning program
  • Nine of the most common solutions that make up blended learning and information on how to implement each of them
  • Illustrative examples of common classroom training programs converted to blended training programs
  • Step-by-step guidance for converting existing training programs to a blending learning approach

Format: Hardcover
The authors define blended learning as the use of the most effective training solutions, applied in a coordinated manner, to achieve learning objectives that will attain the desired business goals. Wilson and Smilanich believe training departments have an array of options in addition to e-learning and classroom training; they suggest looking beyond the training department to employ all of an organization's resources to achieve its human resource development goals.

The book's three parts are: blended program design basics, training solution options, and sample designs converting classroom training to blended learning. It's organization of material is excellent and rich in detail, providing numerous exhibits and cases. Part 3 provides six samples including: business writing training program; orientation training program; management training program; and train-the-trainer program. Chapters end with key points and resources.

A terrific introduction and resource. Takes learning to the leading edge!
