Hybrid learning, license to skill DIGITALLY
From face-to-face learning to hybrid learning: evolution, considerations and challenges for vocational education and training

15:00 | 16:30 CET

Teaching & learning


The rapid evolution towards hybrid learning may be a current logical step, but it does impose conditions with regard to mindset, development of tools and skills. With the rise of education technology, schools and VET-providers have adopted teaching methods that diverge from the typical classroom environment. Simulation in training and distance learning are being used at a global scale, and many educational institutions are starting to implement on a larger scale hybrid learning models.

However, hybrid learning is more than just tossing half of your syllabus into a virtual classroom. Instead, it’s a comprehensive approach to combining the best parts of face-to-face and online learning to create the ideal learning experience.

This webinar shows how this trend towards more hybrid learning evolved and accelerated enormously in the past year in the development of new tools in technical training (welding, process operator) and the training of healthcare personnel.

There are also testimonials about the mindset approach and the coaching of trainers and teachers.
