Blended learning is a broad term used to describe the combination of face-to-face and online delivery of teaching and learning. There are many definitions of the term and different approaches to blended learning. Victoria University describes blended learning in the following way:
“blended learning – otherwise referred to as hybrid learning or mixed mode learning – is usually seen as a mix of face-to-face (f2f) and online delivery, and may refer to the mix of delivery across a whole institution, across a whole course, or within individual units of study”
(VU Agenda and Blueprint for Curriculum Reform, 2012, p21).
This page provides an introduction to some of the principles for blended, or technology-enhanced, learning, and the most well-known approach: flipped classrooms.
