Effective Blended Learning for First Aid Training: A Guide for Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies

This Guide to Effective Blended Learning for First Aid Training is designed to help National Societies to consider if a blended learning approach, using the First Aid App, will help them to meet their training needs. It draws on academic research literature particularly from higher education where blended approaches have been used for over a decade and there is evidence of effectiveness in blended approaches. The guide also refers to a number of online resources for blended learning in higher education as these have some applicability in the RC/RC network context.

The guide brings together insights from the National Societies who are already offering blended first aid training, discusses some of the main issues in implementing blended learning and proposes some strategies for going forward. With 100+ NS having contextualized the GDPC First Aid app, spread right across the RC/RC network, there is a wide disparity in the size, complexity and context of the National Societies. Strategies will be appropriate and relevant for individual NS at different times.

There are 7 sections in this guide and each one presents and aims to answer key questions about blended learning for first aid training in RC/RC National Societies. The sections draw on learning from National Societies which are already using a blended approach in order to inform and guide those who are at the planning stage. The guide also presents results from the survey where these illustrate or inform the issues regarding the implementation of blended learning.
