What are the Differences and Concerns?

Concerns: The major concern with blended learning is that it is going to be another eLearning training over video channel,  The entire process is designed such that the content will provide the same outcome.

Instructors: Do note that instructors delivering the modules remain the same as the onsite training.

International Participation: Another major change will be the participation of more international delegates as compared to the traditional majority of Asian participants.  Be expected to discuss and work as teams from different part of the world.

Readings: Be expected to have more pre-readings as the objective is to ensure that knowledge that could be acquired via reading should be done outside the training session.  More time is allocated to share experiences from the participants and facilitators.
