Blended learning is a combination of learning modalities involving face-to-face instruction and web-based learning delivery. When carefully designed, it uses a customized instructional strategy that leverages the strengths of each. Blended Learning includes different learning or instructional methods (lecture, discussion, guided practice, reading, games, case study, simulation), different delivery methods (live classroom or computer mediated), different scheduling (synchronous or asynchronous) and different levels of guidance (individual, instructor or expert led, or group/social learning).
The CAIU can help you design a learning environment where students learn at least in part through online delivery of content and instruction with some element of student control over time, place, path, or pace.
