Research and Implementation in Post-Secondary Education

Held on Feb. 6, 2024, this online workshop approached the different aspects and practical implications of blended learning as well as the pedagogical strategies needed to design a course in a blended learning modality.

What is blended learning?

Blended learning is an instructional and pedagogical approach that combines face-to-face and online learning activities that are usually asynchronous and mediated by various forms of technology.

This approach develops students’ time management skills and can enhance learning by promoting collaboration while teaching them how to be virtual citizens and lifelong learners.

This modality requires teachers to reflect on their teaching practices and redesign their courses, learning activities, and use of online tools in multiple respects.
