Free workshop offers chance to assess developments in blended learning

Senior managers, trainers and HR practitioners can assess the latest developments in 'blended learning' at a free workshop hosted by Balance Learning. The workshop will run in London, on 15 September, and in Birmingham on 7 October.

As well as evaluating blended learning resources, worshop delegates will be able to benchmark their experiences and share best practice with their peers.

"Today's training departments are turning to blended learning because they are under pressure to deliver more with less," said Chris Horseman, Managing Director of Balance Learning, who will be facilitating the workshop. "Blended Learning can mean any mix of training methods. We'll be highlighting a specific approach that surveys user objectives and needs and combines e-learning modules, ready-made live training resources and post-training workplace activities."

Balance Learning has developed a three-step blended approach that caters for different learning styles.

"Our approach to management development training combines the individual focus of online learning with the skills practice and peer group advantages of classroom training," said Chris Horseman. "We've also developed scheduled follow-up activities which ensure that the knowledge and skills learned are transferred to the workplace. This not only makes the learning more efficient and effective but it frees up development time for trainers."

The London workshop will be held at the Lanesborough Hotel, Hyde Park Corner, on 15 September. It will run from 8.30am to 12.30pm and breakfast will be provided.

The Birmingham event will be held at the Hyatt Regency, 2 Bridge Street, on 7 October, from 9.15am to 1.15pm. A buffet lunch will be provided.

The organisers say that places at both events are limited. To register, visit Balance Learning's website at

All delegates will receive a complimentary copy of Balance Learning's forthcoming research report which compares the effectiveness of blended learning, against other learning approaches, in the UK and the USA.
