Overview

##

Technology has fundamentally changed how we learn, making it more engaging but also challenging. This course shows how to embed blended learning practices in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector. You will explore how new technology can assist learning from experience, how it helps overcome challenges in the sector, and will develop your own skills and discover the optimal uses of blended learning. With over 90% satisfaction rate on its previous runs, this course will support implementation of blended learning in your practice.

This course is open to everyone, but is particularly aimed at those working in further education, skills training, vocational education, workplace learning, and lifelong learning or adult education. We provide a range of accreditation pathways, whether you are directly supporting learners or delivering training and seek to use blended learning more effectively.

Time commitment

The course is designed to be completed in around 4 hours per week, with optional further reading in addition. All activities have recommended times, and there are plenty of resources and activities for you to explore further if you’d like to do more on a particular topic. You can join at any time during the course.

I loved this course it hit the mark spot on. I work with faculty in Higher Ed and I was curious about how this MOOC might help them to undertake their course designs. I be that it will. The MOOC is extremely well designed from a learning stance and the interface is really clear, clean and intuitive. The instructors were right there all the way and summary at the end of each week was excellent. Lots of great content, discussions and a good model for those interested in blended learning in Higher and Vocational Ed.

by Maria completed this course, spending 7 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Informative, thorough, active participants and excellent mentors. It will take much more than 4 hours a week if you are really interested in the topic. The course will be available after completion so you can always go back to it. Highly recommended.
