Blended Leaning Apprenticeship Training

IMG_0035

 

I had a chance to hear Greg Ryan speak at last year’s Global Innovators conference, and we were all inspired again to hear of his success with this pilot blended learning programme for apprentices.

 

Using Desire2Learn, Bridgit, Turning Point technology, and Polycom, Greg’s students in Labrador West can now stay in their community to complete apprenticeship blocks rather than attend school on the island. His vision of “one classroom” despite the remote locations seems to be working, and he has received a lot of feedback on this model as apprentices and other post-secondary students look for greater convenience and expect post-secondary providers to cater to their needs as mature learners.

    Interesting! I spoke to Greg when he was here for the Global Innovators Conference. He was using interactve technology to teach and was having great success.
