The E-coach Blog
By Alison Bickford on October 14, 2012
This blog post is for participants coming to the Blended Learning Workshop on October 18 2012. I’m really looking forward to working with you.
We will be covering blended learning from a holistic perspective, workplace performance support design (on-demand learning), participative webinar design and social media for learning. At the end of the day we will be putting it altogether with a group activity, blending an existing training program.
As you begin to think about the workshop, I invite you to share some of your favourite videos and social media platforms. Simply click Comments at the end of this blog post and share your video or social media platform URL, and a small comment on why they are your favourite. I will refer to these during the workshop.
Also, for those of you who like time to reflect, I will be opening the workshop by asking you the following questions. Feel free to think about your answer prior to the workshop or make a comment:
- What new blended learning design skills and knowkedge would make a difference to your practice?
- What new skills in learning would make a difference to your staff?
- What new staff capabilities would make a difference to your organisation? (Refer to the framework below as you consider this question)
- What is your favourite learning technology of all time and why?
Thanks, and don’t hesitate to leave a comment if you have any questions.

Thank you to Kerry for posting a review on a Sydney Institute of TAFE blog of an e-learning instructional design workshop presented by myself and Duy Hyunh of Beyond Edge for the Australian Flexible Learning Framework.
There was some discussion about the ADDIES model we presented – ADDIE with a “S. The “S” is really about operationalising the e-learning course after implementation. For example, reminding people that it exists, embedding it into workflow, and ensuring it is included in user testing when the IT standard operating environment is scheduled to change.
I am happy to share this model here, for your review. Click the image to download.
Should you have any questions about this workshop or the ADDIES model, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
