Personalised Learning Programmes - a pick and choose approach
The debate in education is often about the effectiveness of method and technique. Recent research into three different approaches in North America has shown that personalisation of the learning process is key. For teachers and trainers working in the business to business environment, providing a tailored corporate solution has always been the goal. In this workshop we will explore the “why” of personalisation and then focus on the three pillars of personalisation: needs analysis, course design and using the students as resource; looking at ways in which some of the technology that’s out there can streamline these processes and help you to deliver a highly adaptive, flexible course with measurable, individualised outcomes.
