‘You know Ger, we still do most of our training via classroom’ is often what peers tell me. They do so in a way as if they just confessed a crime. But there is no need for ‘classroom-training-shame’. There can be a thousand good reasons to choose for classroom training and classroom training can be great, very engaging and very effective.
Continuing the conversation they often say: ‘every aspect of our daily live and work now has online elements, so we can’t stay behind’. Fair point. Quite often the conversation continues about the practical struggles that professionals face when they want to evolve classroom training to a more blended and online version.
‘You’re not alone’ is one of the things I often tell them. But that doesn’t really help. So I’m glad that I can now offer them and you this episode of the learning notes with practical ‘how-to’ tips to move from classroom to blended or online. And besides the ‘how to’ they also dive into the ‘why’. The why is very important and that’s why I ‘handpicked’ the four resources with that in mind. Good luck with your classroom-to-blended-learning journey!
