FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MADISON, Wis. (04/02/2013) – What is blended learning and why is it needed in credit union training programs? A new white paper from the CUNA HR/TD Council takes a look at the benefits of mixing delivery methods, formats, activities, and learner assessments to deliver the best training possible for credit union staff, management, and members.

“Finding the Right Blend: Learning Solutions for Credit Unions,” includes research on the effectiveness of blended learning when compared with pure face-to-face, instructor-led training and pure online learning. Several credit union professionals weigh in on why blended learning works best for their organizations, and they offer suggestions on how to develop effective blended training programs.

Key to making it work, they agree, is to secure buy-in from all parties involved: management, learners, subject matter experts, and trainers. Buy-in is a cycle: When you meet business objectives and learner needs, excitement for the program builds. Then learning occurs, return on investment is easier to demonstrate, and management continues to support the initiative.

CUNA Council members are eligible to receive complimentary copies of this, and over 300 other white papers; non-Council members may purchase white papers for $50 per copy.

The paper is available online in the white paper section of www.cunacouncils.org.

Press may contact Jenny Jackson at jjackson@cuna.coop for a copy of the white paper.
