Blended learning

Blended learning (also known as hybrid learning) is when traditional classroom teaching is combined with online learning and independent study, allowing the student to have more control over the time, pace and style of their learning.

 

How can I do it?

The flipped classroom approach is a form of blended learning, where students can use technology to gain a base knowledge of a topic and then make more effective use of contact time to investigate deeper, or get support with any misunderstandings.

Another way of using Reflect for blended learning could be to record videos for use as supplemental course material. You could cover the main topic in a lecture, and then provide a recording of some of the more complex issues to help students grasp the concepts, or to deepen their understanding of the subject.

Effective blended learning is more than simply uploading a lecture recording. Both online and offline teaching need to support and inform each other to improve the student experience. For help and support with blended learning please contact Leicester Learning Institute lli@le.ac.uk.
