The Challenge

With continued expansion of learning methods and modalities, the Government of Alberta was looking for a guidance tool for purchasers and designers of training. Commissioned by Life-Role Development Group Ltd., the consultants of MixtMode were brought into the project because of our expertise in mix modalities and were asked to formulate a report.

Our Solution

The report provided a comprehensive overview of contemporary learning modalities and methods. It highlighted key strengths and limitations of the modalities. It was to be utilized as a guidance tool for purchasers or designers of training when considering a wide-range of complimentary training and learning activities addressing varying needs and constraints. The report included:

  • Learning Alternatives Chart
  • Principles of Learning
  • Learning Modality Analysis and Method Matrix

We recognize that this is a complex and challenging time. Practitioners and agencies have responded by radically changing the way services are provided to the many Clients needing support.
