Blended Learning

Variety is the Spice of Learning

At DDI, everything we do is based on science. And one thing we know? That people learn better when there's variety in their learning journey. Variety keeps their engagement high and helps them make continuous new connections to concepts.

Yet, designing a blended learning journey can seem daunting. Especially today, when there are an overwhelming number of options, approaches, and new technologies. Giving leaders the right mix of high-tech and high-touch learning experiences at the right moment accelerates their development. And the payoff is huge—for you, your leaders, and your company. 

With DDI by your side, you can design a blended learning journey that’s proven to get results. 

Design a Blended Learning Journey 

Learning shouldn’t be one and done. Rather, the most effective learning happens over time. That way, it’s not just about gaining knowledge. It’s about changing behavior and discovering a new way of leading.

Our consultants are ready to work with you to design a learning journey that’s unique for your company’s needs. Whether you want to go completely virtual or mix it up with in-person events, we’ll help you keep your leaders engaged with a variety of content and tools.

Develop Leaders Virtually or In Person

Research shows classroom is still king: leaders learn best with other leaders. But that doesn't mean they have to sit together in the same room. You can create an engaging live classroom experience whether your leaders are working from home or opposite ends of the world.

The goal is to make sure your leaders feel connected to one another throughout their learning journey with the right high-touch moments. Even better? Every leader can supplement their journey with microcourses and online courses they can explore at their own pace.

We’ve served up our leaders a current, digital, and flexible learning program they can all get behind..it’s a continuous, ongoing program that will continue to feed our organizational success and align to our overall strategy.

Personalize with Just-for-Me Tools

Leaders thrive with personalized learning, so give them on-demand tools to build and practice skills and connect with mentors and other leaders. With DDI’s Pinpoint platform, leaders can access relevant microlearning, simulations, games, coaching opportunities, and other application tools anytime, anywhere.

Engage leaders with microlearning

Not every learning experience needs to be a deep dive. While longer courses are great for learning complex topics and practicing skills, leaders also appreciate quick bursts of learning.

Microlearning is a critical part of any blended learning journey. These short pieces of content, whether a video, mini course, or online tool, offer short, relevant insight into a topic. It’s a key way to keep leaders engaged, and personalize their learning. And it can done on their own schedule.
