Blended Learning: Explained

Blended Learning is the considered, complementary use of face-to-face teaching, online tools, technology, and resources to enhance student education. It encompasses student use of the internet, mobile devices, social media, Virtual Learning Environments, lecture/desktop capture, and other learning and teaching approaches, usually mixed together with traditional face-to-face teaching.
Everywhere a student comes into contact with learning material, Blended Learning has a role. Whether it's in the lecture theatres, library, or at home, we aim to make learning as accessible and fun as possible for everyone involved.
This group spans the entire MaPS faculty, but has representatives for each of the schools: Physics & Astronomy, Maths & Statistics, Food Science & Nutrition, and Chemistry. You can find your school's representative on the Committee page.
As technology continues to grow and shape the world around us, so too must our teaching practices. These pages exist to promote the adoption of Blended and Digital Learning within the Faculty and provide a number of resources for the members of teaching staff who are looking for help.
