Blended Learning

What is Blended Learning?

Blended learning is an education model that combines traditional face-to-face instruction with online learning. It is designed to offer students a flexible and personalized learning experience that takes advantage of the strengths of both in-person and online education.

In a blended learning environment, students may complete some coursework online, using a variety of digital resources, such as videos, simulations, and interactive exercises. They may also participate in traditional face-to-face classes, where they can work with instructors and peers in a more traditional classroom setting.

Blended learning can take a variety of forms, depending on the specific goals and needs of the program or institution. Some examples of blended learning models include:

Flipped classroom: In this model, students complete online lessons and activities outside of class, and use class time for hands-on activities and discussion.

Hybrid: In this model, students attend a mix of online and in-person classes, with the majority of coursework completed online.

Self-blend: In this model, students have the flexibility to choose between online and in-person options, depending on their preferences and learning needs.

Blended learning can be effective in a variety of settings, including K-12 education, higher education, and professional development. It can offer students a more flexible and personalized learning experience and can be an effective way to meet the needs of diverse learners.
