Introduction to Our Blended Learning Method
The Readiness Institute incorporates an integrated (blended) learning program which melds several content delivery methods (learning platforms) including webinars, self-directed study, classroom training, and one-on one mentoring and coaching.
Teaching the theory on the subject of Lean Six Sigma, for instance, is delivered in the form of instruction given in live lectures via the Internet, online self-study presentations and videos, and offline readings and exercises from select books serving as additional structured materials. The trainee gains experience and wisdom by leveraging the theoretical content into a practical application with the support of a knowledgeable coach.
Because it is far better to leverage an integrated learning model that separately teaches the theory and the practical, this practical application of the materials are being learned on a project that is of benefit to the company with the face-to face support of the assigned coach and mentor.
The blended learning method can also be described as a movement toward integrated lessons helping trainees make connections across curricula.
