This week we reviewed a scenario in which a training manager had decided to convert a face-to-face training course to a blended distance learning format. After reviewing the scenario we were asked to develop a best practice guide for the trainer to follow while converting his face-to-face learning course to a blended format. The guide that I developed emphasizes the importance of carefully considering all components of the course to ensure it is developed effectively to ensure the trainees have a successful and meaningful learning experience. The guide addresses pre-planning strategies as well as learning enhancements for distance learning for the trainer to consider. The guide additionally address the role the trainer must play and way to effectively foster communication in the blended distance learning format.
