Blended Learning

The term ‘Blended Learning’ (BL) means different things to different people. Moreover, attempts to create a blended Business English course often fail. Why?

This talk first explores the roots of BL within the corporate world; summarises what the research says; presents key definitions and dimensions of the term, and provides some working models of BL (e.g. a ‘dual track’ approach).

Secondly, I list the main reasons why teachers and organisations wish to blend; the challenges; and the critical factors in making BL work.

Finally, I present an innovative step-by-step framework for business English organisations / freelance teachers looking to develop their own blended courses. It will enable practitioners to make informed choices: e.g. between common learning platforms, and between commercially-digital material vs creating your own content.

Attendees will leave with a clear idea of how to create a successful, BL course for a range of common business English contexts.
