Abstract: This paper focuses upon the lessons learnt from the redesign of a traditionally delivered vocational module to one that utilised a blended learning strategy. The redesign was for a second year HND Human Resource Development module. This was an iterative, qualitative approach to change rather than a specific action learning project. As problems or areas for improvement were identified appropriate actions were taken. The paper explains how the redesign was focused upon helping students to become well balanced learners in relation to the stages in the experiential learning cycle and developing strengths with regard to their learning styles. The paper also highlights the importance of social learning theory and andragogy when designing new learning experiences for students. The paper starts with a review of the main concepts that underpinned the redesign of the module
