Is hybrid learning the new era in education and training?


Post-pandemic, Hybrid learning has grown to become a way of life for most students. Those looking at entering skill-first industries are usually known to opt for this kind of learning situation since it enhances their knowledge and skill set without major obstacles which come along with regular learning. With edtech platforms welcoming a new era of education and training, students can benefit from myriad benefits which come with remote learning mixed with physical learning. The challenge here is to pick the most suited courses to their career paths, which will help them learn and put their skills into practice.

Utilise E-Learning perks

Edtech platforms use e-learning time for sharing key e-resources and setting up webinars and lectures with eminent industry faculty and personalities both national and international. These hours of remote learning prove to be as important as in-person classes, which enhances the quality of training a student has access to.

Provide options to upskill and re-skill

Edtech platforms use hybrid learning by giving an opportunity to study remotely from time to time, which gives a student more chances to explore their skill-set and sharpen them by not losing precious years of their career. The remote learning phases of the class can be utilized by those looking to upskill or re-skill in particular professions like aviation or hospitality, to give them an edge over other prospective candidates for a lucrative promotion or job offer.

Networking and learning opportunities

Hybrid learning can capitalise on various kinds of engagement to train students instead of relying on solely traditional methods. In today’s era, one kind of learning often can leave training one-sided only. This stunts a course, and in-turn may stunt a student’s training experience. The kind of educational and training tools available to us thanks to the evolution in tech need to be utilised and done full justice to. During In-person training, students get a chance to develop interpersonal relationships and networks which they would not have had a chance to if they were only focussing on remote learning. In-person hours also give them the necessary experience needed for simulation and on-ground training which plays an integral role in on-field careers like Mass Media, Hospitality, Hotel Management and Aviation. This can be clubbed with learning using various tools for training available in the remote learning arena. The trainer can choose which specific module requires what kind of training, and accordingly
impart that to students. By doing this, students have the best of all worlds and are truly ready to deal with on-the-job challenges in a real-life scenario.

Hybrid learning makes individuals truly understand themselves, their strengths and their weaknesses. This helps them work alongside their trainers to develop their strong points and overcome challenges. Hybrid learning also provides opportunities to study international courses, learn from international personalities and access global resources. This provides the much-needed edge with which a candidate can stand out in the job market clutter.
