About The Programme

The current crisis has called for a change in the ways of teaching and learning. The demand is to change the landscape of teaching by incorporating alternative pedagogical techniques. One of the plausible ways is blended learning. Broadly speaking, blended learning is integration of interactive technology with conventional classroom settings. To put it differently, it is a midpoint between classroom teaching and a complete online learning environment. It gives more flexibility to customize the learning experience for students and motivate them to use multiple learning styles. Blending learning, in a way, facilitates the development of a stronger mental connection in students, thereby increasing their learning receptivity.

Moreover, blended learning can be an alternative to overcome the geographical and time constraints through its adaptive framework.

Taking this as a reference point, this Faculty Development Programme on Blended Learning aims to explore the different ways to implement Blended Learning. It is important to understand that Blended Learning is not simply adding technology to the classroom. Rather, it has to be integrated into everyday teaching, thereby emphasizing on re-thinking the current pedagogical approach. The programme intends to explore the different models of blended learning and dive into key issues that impact students, teachers, and institutions of Higher Education. Specifically, we plan to look at these issues by integrating the conceptual backgrounds and different schools of Blended Learning with the technological applications used for building an effective blended learning curriculum.

Overall, the Programme is an effort to probe into the different limitations which Faculties of Higher Education face and find the alternatives to overcome them by focusing on the fundamentals that have the greatest impact on student learning in a blended or online environment.
