Blended Delivery for Engagement and Impact
Date Thursday, Nov 28 Time – Room Tegel
We're not stuck in the classroom anymore. Today, all delivery of content is blended. That's inevitable in an era of near ubiquitous internet provision, and powerful, smart devices. But that doesn't mean the blend is right. This session focuses on how to create effective blends that make the most of the content and technology available - often in difficult circumstances - to help people learn faster, and better, in ways that suit them.
