AARs, Innovation, & Blended Learning

Blended Delivery: Mixing Modalities - Chief Learning Officer
Blended learning used to refer to the different teaching styles used inside the classroom. Today, with the introduction of synchronous and asynchronous learning, the term now refers to the range of delivery options available to learning professionals, including classroom-based, instructor-led training (ILT), synchronous or asynchronous e-learning, portable technologies and on-the-job training (OJT).

Thanks for the link to the article on AARs. I spent 4 years at the Army's National Training Center (see my newsletter on AARs: http://www.mach2seminars.com/News/2007/LeaderBusinessJune07.pdf) and know that AARs are the centerpiece of organizational and personal growth. Thanks.
