What are Guild Academy Blended Learning Courses?
The Guild Academy’s Blended Learning courses combine in-person sessions, live online learning, and asynchronous activities in our social learning and knowledge sharing platform. The in-person sessions of our blended learning courses are currently co-located with our conferences. They are designed and facilitated by professional trainers and eLearning practitioners.
What if I can’t attend all of the sessions in a course I want to take?
We recommend taking all sessions to ensure your success in the training. Courses that include multiple sessions are designed to be taken together.
Are course sessions recorded?
No. Guild Academy Live Online Learning session are not recorded. Having access to live feedback is an important aspect of our training.
When should I register?
Register as soon as you can! Space is limited to ensure that the class size is small, so register early to reserve your spot. Be sure to check for registration discounts, because there are several—including organizational and group discounts—for which you may qualify. Registration Details
