Engaging participants through online & blended learning by:

  • Designing programs, curricula, courses or events;
  • Promoting learning through instructor-led or self-paced webinars, workshops, seminars, or courses;
  • Applying interactive, experiential and collaborative methods; or
  • Developing faculty skills in online instruction and evaluation.

E-learning options can use synchronous technologies for real-time communication and exchange, or asynchronous technologies for any-time participation. Blended or hybrid options can combine online and face-to-face learning experiences.

These approaches can be flexibly combined in a variety of ways to meet the needs of the organization and participants, and make strategic use of a variety of approaches. For example, synchronous and asynchronous sessions can be sequenced to allow participants to review materials and interact with peers at their convenience, but also have a chance for immediate and lively discussion with the instructor and peers.

If it is possible to convene face-to-face, online preparation and follow-up activities can make the time together more worthwhile.
