Blended learning, while it can be difficult to define, is best thought of as a means for the flexible delivery of learning, whether that is via face to face or online methods. The key to good blended learning is identifying when it is best to use either a physical or digital tool. It expands your choice of what is possible and extends the classroom into the online space.
This workshop, specially designed for Higher Education in Oman, offers a practitioner’s journey into planning and implementing processes for faculty.
