WHAT IS BLENDED LEARNING?
Blended learning, sometimes known as hybrid learning, is a teaching and learning model that has a face-to-face class or tutorial component combined with an on-line learning component. According to the data from the Texas Educating Adults Management System (TEAMS) adult learners who engage in blended learning outperform learners who only attend a traditional classroom as well as the learners who receive more than 50% of their contact hours at a distance.
BLENDED LEARNING AND ADULT EDUCATION
Blended learning enables students more flexibility, learning at different pace and greater autonomy. Learners in adult education centers across Europe face similar challenges such as lack of basic skills, lack of time due to family and work obligations, poor learning habits, low motivation, financial issues. etc. It is the development and implementation of blended learning courses that can be tremendously helpful for adult education organizations to answer the aforementioned needs.
