DEFINITION (what BL is)

  • Blended Learning: Mixing the Real and the Virtual
  • A combination of face-to-face (F2F) and
  • online learning for a course
  • Synchronous and asynchronous learning
  • Real-time, real-space (in-classroom) and
  • virtual (online)
  • Unique sequencing but integrated
  • May involve uses of mobile devices in ambient space (virtual-enhanced reality)
definition purpose
DEFINITION (purpose)

Blended Learning is combining multiple learning components and learning events to create a meaningful learning experience.

slide4

DEFINITION (design)

  • The thoughtful integration of face-to-face classroom (spontaneous verbal discourse) and Internet based (reflective text-based discourse) learning opportunities
  • Not an add-on to a classroom lecture nor an online course; fundamental redesign
  • An optimal (re)design approach to enhance and extend learning by rethinking and restructuring class contact hours.
