COVID-19 Resilience Plan for the post-16 sector: Basic principles in designing blended learning programmes
The Welsh Government's blended learning guidance for Post-16 providers is a collection of material developed in consultation with the Welsh Government's Blended Learning Working Group. It includes guidance on blended learning for learning providers and teaching practitioners.
This Basic principles in designing blended learning programmes document provides suggestions to help adult education professionals consider the steps to take to produce coherent blended learning courses and training programmes. It emphasizes designing quality learning experiences that stretch and challenge learners, and then choosing the technology that best fits the delivery.
As stated in the Covid-19 Resilience Plan for the Post-16 sector, the Welsh Government’s intention is to work with the post-16 sector:
- to ensure that learners can access appropriate resources and support
- to build capacity to deal with future social distancing guidelines
- to support the increased use of digital and blended learning, in line with the Welsh Government’s Digital 2030 strategic framework
