How blended learning is sweeping the country

by Peter Kilcoyne, TES

“Many hands make light work,” the saying goes. While technology has increasingly helped us to make work lighter, it is teamwork with like-minded individuals that will make this lighter still. With that in mind, and with the ever-increasing influence of technology on our daily lives, Heart of Worcestershire (HoW) College set out to create a blended learning consortium; pooling resources with fellow colleges in order to continually deliver high-quality online provision for our learners. As winner of the “outstanding use of technology” category at the TES FE Awards last year, the college has externally-recognised expertise in this area. We are now in the fifth year of delivering a cross-college blended learning curriculum (combining face-to-face and online learning), and have found that fully embracing online components in courses brings great benefits for students and colleges.
