Blended Learning – What do participants find most useful?

Project: Talent Development 11th September 2017

We are all clear that it is good practice that capacity-building goes beyond a single training event, but what ‘works’ best in blended learning for humanitarian professionals?

RedR has recently conducted a mid-term review of its ‘Context’ programme, under which 149 national humanitarian staff have been trained so far in Jordan and Kenya. The aim of the Context programme is to develop the core humanitarian competencies and leadership skills of national staff in order to improve humanitarian response.

At the end of the programme, participants rated which parts of the programme they found most beneficial. Besides being very positive about the programme in general, what stood out was that participants found the two face to face workshops to be most beneficial, as well as working on their learning project. On the other hand, reviews were very mixed on the benefit of the buddy groups, online courses and the support provided by line managers. Please refer to the full paper for the detailed feedback on each of the components.
