As time and generations change, so does the way we learn. Thus, it is important to create a training environment conducive to learning and utilise facilitation methods to which learners can easily adapt and which is compatible with learner needs.
Blended Learning combines online/digital media with that of traditional classroom methods. Although both the facilitator and learner are present during the training sessions, this methodology allows the learner certain elements of control pertaining to the management of their time and pace.
Ikhwezi uses the “face-to-face driver” model of blended learning. This means the facilitator drives the instruction and augments the content with digital tools. Irrespective of this, all learners are provided with hard-copies of all manuals, guides and assessments.
Advantages of Blended Learning:
- It is more effective than traditional learning or online learning used alone;
- Results in high levels of student achievement;
- Time effective;
- Allows learners to work at their own pace, and ensure they understand the work before moving on.
