Using Blended Learning for the Professional Development of Youth Workers

YouthLearn was excited to collaborate with the National Collaboration for Youth (www.nydic.org) in conducting an online survey for their recent publication, "Using Blended Learning for the Professional Development of Youth Workers." Pam Garza, Director of the National Youth Development Learning Network with the National Collaboration for Youth, explains that an essential element in the building and sustaining of effective youth development organizations is the ongoing professional development of youth workers. Yet there are many factors, e.g. time and staffing constraints, prohibitive costs, and staff turnover, that often exist as barriers to providing continuous learning opportunities for youth workers. Because of this, organizations are beginning to use a 'blend' of online learning with face-to-face opportunities. This 'Blended Learning' format has emerged as an affordable, timely, and applicable alternative for organizations to ensure the professional development of paid and unpaid staff.

Check out this publication, which includes the findings of the survey and promising practices on professional development efforts using Blended Learning methods. http://www.nydic.org/nydic/documents/Prof_Series_ENews_4.pdf
