Beyond the Classroom: Our approach to blended learning

In a world where digital transformation and Agile methodologies are not just buzzwords but essential frameworks, the way we approach professional development and learning must evolve. Blended learning—once a novel concept—is now a strategic asset for organisations committed to staying at the forefront of educational technology and innovation. It combines the immediacy of face-to-face instruction with the flexibility of online modules, creating a dynamic and adaptable learning environment. At Elabor8 Academy, we’re redefining the blended learning experience.


The genesis of our new approach

Life today is a blend of myriad experiences, and learning and development (L&D) should be no different. Our new hybrid learning model has been directly shaped by the invaluable feedback we’ve received from our students. We’ve taken the essence of Agile—iterative improvement—and applied it to competency-based education.


Enabling technology for enhanced learning

We’ve invested in our learning management systems (LMS) and interactive learning tools to elevate the e-learning experience, packaging the theory into short self-directed learning modules. Our technology doesn’t just deliver content; it enables our practitioner trainers to delve into the complexities of real-world challenges that our clients face, offering a more tailored and impactful learning experience. It’s not just about learning; it’s about applying, iterating, and mastering.


Bridging theory and practice

You spoke, and we listened. The gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application has been a long-standing issue in professional education. Our blended learning programs are designed to obliterate that gap. Come to us with the challenges you face in your professional context; leave with actionable insights and strategies, fortified by the coaching of our practitioner trainers.


Educating the modern learner

What’s shaping the future of learning? We’ve identified several trends that are changing the learning landscape:

  • Remote capabilities: We’re seeing a seismic shift towards remote learning, with a staggering 19% increase in learning retention rates when leveraging remote learning tools.
  • Guided learning journeys: Structured pathways that lead learners through a series of interconnected lessons and activities.
  • Competency-based learning: Focused on mastering skills rather than merely completing courses.


Benefits of our new approach

Our updated blended learning model offers several advantages:

  • Avoids Learning Fatigue: By breaking down complex new ideas over time, we make the learning process more manageable.
  • Engages All Styles of Learners: Whether you’re a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner, our approach has something for you.
  • Reinforces Learning in Daily Work: The blend of theory and practical application ensures that what you learn is immediately applicable to your daily tasks.
