A blended learning approach to instruction combines face-to-face classroom tuition led by expert tutors with online self-study time, meaning an integrated learning experience for individuals. Our blended programmes combine face-to-face and online methods to varying degrees, depending on the course in question, the size of the class, learner demographics, and instructor preferences. There is no -best fit- approach to our blended learning and packages can be agreed to accommodate the client.
For example, a blended approach to a traditional open (classroom) course might mean that the class meets twice a week instead of the usual five-session format for certificate level courses. Learning activities that otherwise would have taken place during classroom time can be moved online with the help of different tools and techniques.
The aim of our blended learning is to leverage the best aspects of both face-to-face and online instruction for the benefit of the individual. The advantage of using a blended approach is that instead of using classroom time for presentation of material, for example, we can use that time to engage our learners by responding to and clarifying questions, to help them apply what they have viewed/listened to, and to work together face-to-face or in team problem-solving. Furthermore, online activities and assessments can usually be completed in an individual's own time where internet access is available.
