Question from Prof. Diana Laurillard’s keynote session #16

  If the target students are part time students/ working adults, is blended learning the solution for this group of students especially amongst their busy schedule?

  1. Blended learning is a much more flexible way of learning, allowing students to choose when to do the online activities. If all the learning time is f2f then they have to be there at that time, with no flexibility. If the online activities are well constructed, well motivated, and linked to the assessment and certification, then they will be more actively engaged in learning, and in a more flexible way. The total learning time should still be the same, but a blend of online and f2f.
    But this only works if the online activities are well designed and well motivated.
