BLENDED LEARNING


Reaching new heights: blended learning


“Blended learning” is not new or novel. It’s as old fashioned as homework. Thanks to technology, however, blended learning has reached new heights the past several years and begun a meteor-like rise in 2020. Debbie Evans of Evans Marketing Partners reports


S


tay-at-home orders and physical distancing guidelines have forced us to look at new ways to train our


team members and maintain professional certifications while preparing to open, or re-open, our amusement facilities. Terms associated with blended learning include interactive, video, web- based, experiential and distance learning. All of these are, or can be, part of blended learning which simply means teaching or training without relying on printed materials and face-to-face instruction. Not that printed materials and face-to-face instruction aren’t part of blended learning, they just aren’t the sole

or primary source of instruction. Every day the definition of blended learning grows as trainers, operators and human resources professionals in our industry stretch and expand in search of ways to prepare our workforce to both entertain and protect not only our guests, but also each other.


By combining videos, video-


conferencing, interactive quizzes, slideshows and progress tracking, employers can extend engaging training programmes beyond the classroom keeping team members engaged and allowing them to participate in training on their own schedule. Starting the learning


process at home, or virtually anywhere team members have a connected device, can reduce overall training time resulting in more productive on-site training. In the fall of 2019, Mary Jane Brewer,


executive director of AIMS International, saw the need for better access to safety training. By creating a safety-focused learning management system, AIMS connectED, Brewer and her colleagues are able to expand the organisation’s mission of improving safety through education. AIMS connectED combines the strategies of blended learning and also tracks a learner’s completion of courses and programmes.
