Oct. 24, 2012 - PRLog -- The ‘new’ blended learning is different, says high profile learning technology specialist, blogger ( and author Clive Shepherd - it goes well beyond simply bolting on some eLearning to a classroom course.

At the Charity Learning Conference and Awards ( on 14 November, London he’ll be explaining how to successfully mix informal and social learning into the learning blend, using the most appropriate social contexts for learning.

Clive, a Director of Onlignment (, is an entertaining presenter and was a popular Chairman of the Charity Learning Conference & Awards last year. This year he’ll be passing on his knowledge and expertise to delegates in an interactive, one hour blended learning workshop.

He’ll look at the learning media that is most effective; how you can ensure quality; and the skills and tools needed to make blended learning succeed in this practical session.

Clive Shepherd commented: “Blended learning is not a new idea, but it’s at the heart of where we need to be going with 21st Century learning interventions.”
