Blended learning


caption

Blended learning represents a hybrid learning approach that combines different elements of face-to-face (traditional classroom) and online learning, such as asynchronous (online discussion forums, emails, blogs, wikis) or synchronous learning (instant chats, video-conferences, webinars). Blended learning is considered as one of the most successful methods of modern pedagogy, as it allows mixing together traditional and innovative teaching methods and addressing the growing needs of learner’s flexibility in time and space. However, the biggest challenge of the instructor before embarking on the blended learning journey is to carefully explore the potential of various face-to-face and e-learning approaches and tools and design creative ways of interaction to increase the success of the learning process. There is no silver bullet blended formula, thus the teacher’s role is to apply a tailor-made approach to course design that matches the course objectives, the learning delivery method, and learners’ needs and expectations and provides a coherent learning journey.
