The very nature of this approach has to mean that the ‘one size fits all’ approach really doesn’t work’. Just like the misshapen T-shirt with the label ‘one size’, it cannot compare to the unique tailoring and fit of a made-to-measure garment. Learning that means something important, personal and special to the individual will have far more impact than a generic learning product. So how can we apply this principle to blended learning? First we need to set blended learning in the broader context of learning, and one of the most enduring models about learning is Kolb’s learning cycle.

Peter Salovey and John Mayer in the 1990s defined emotional intelligence ‘in terms of being able to monitor and regulate one’s own and other’s feelings and to use feelings to guide thought and action’. His own definition includes five basic emotional and social competencies: 1. self-awareness; 2. self-regulation; 3. motivation; 4. empathy; 5. social skills. Goleman’s work moves emotional intelligence into the arena of emotional competence by further defining 25 emotional competencies and explaining that individuals will have a profile of strengths and limits, but that: the ingredients for outstanding performance require only that we have strengths in a given number of these competencies, typically at least six or so, and that the strengths be spread across all five areas of emotional intelligence.
