The Present State and Future Trends of Blended Learning in Workplace Learning Settings across Five Countries
Kim, Kyong-Jee; Bonk, Curtis; Teng, Ya-Ting
Asia Pacific Education Review, v10 n3 p299-308 Sep 2009
This article reports survey findings related to the current status and future trends of blended learning in workplace learning settings from diverse cultures. This particular survey was conducted of 674 training and human resource development professionals from five different countries, mostly from the Asia-Pacific region (i.e., China, South Korea, Taiwan, United States, and the United Kingdom). The results show that blended learning will become a popular delivery method in the future of workplace learning not only in Western countries but also in Asian countries. Still, the respondents indicated that there were several barriers to blended learning; one of the most noticeable issues was their lack of understanding of blended learning. There is a pressing need, therefore, to provide practitioners with guidance on how to implement blended learning in their organizations. Additionally, among the countries surveyed, the results of the present study revealed that there were significant differences in the current level of adoption of blended learning, the respondents' attitudes toward and perceptions of blended learning, and the content areas taught by blended learning. Respondents' predictions related to emerging instructional strategies, technologies, and evaluation techniques for blended learning are also reported.
