AUB's Academic Computing Center completes pilot project in blended learning teaching

AUB's Academic Computing Center (ACC) recently completed a pilot project in blended (or hybrid) learning, which replaces a portion of the time spent in the classroom with a carefully designed on-line learning environment. Four professors from different faculties participated and received training and guidance from ACC in the redesign and delivery of their existing courses.

Blended courses combine the advantages of traditional instructor-student face-to-face contact with many other benefits. Such courses encourage active and independent learning by engaging students in activities that enhance their ability to think critically. Students tend to interact more in group work and other collaborative efforts that ultimately strengthen individual performance. Professors and students alike benefit from a more flexible schedule.
