Welcome to my refreshed website and the new home of my blog!

I’m delighted to be launching the BlendIT programme today at the LPI Learning Live conference. Having run training programmes to develop trainers and teachers over many years I never expected to find myself turning my courses into a University accredited qualification.

I am excited to be finally sharing the programme publically having running it successfully over the past year with over 100 people achieving the qualification so far.

The University of Derby Corporate team and the people who have completed the programme have helped me to understand that what I have put together is worth sharing more widely:

“The course was excellent and certainly reaches the parts that other blending courses don’t. The depth and breadth of the course was amazing and the support and inspiration you gave us was to say the least exceptional. The team I work with were pretty innovative anyway (we thought) but you have taken us to a whole new level.”

In the coming weeks I will share my definition of what the term Blended Learning means to me in 2012. My understanding of the term has moved on considerably from being only the combining of learning technology with live delivery. As I see it now it represents a blend that flows across the whole learning journey and encompasses both formal and informal learning, actively encouraging the development of social workplace learning.

If you want to know more about the programme, take a look at the BlendIT tab at the top of the page.

If you find yourself at Learning Live on 12th or 13th September – do come and tell me what you think!
