A very interesting discussion facilitated by Dr Tony Bates who argues that hybrid learning is probably the most significant development in e-learning and teaching in general. He explores why this is happening and takes a look at current hybrid models and then poses some really key questions to stimulate discussion. "What should be done in face-to-face class, and what should be done online? What is the university offering these students on campus that they couldn’t get from studying online? And what models or design principles can guide us in answering those questions? What should the instructional design strategy be for hybrid courses?‘’
According to Tony, very little on the comparative "affordances" of face-to-face vs online learning exists in current literature.. Will be interesting to follow the development of this discussion and any further research on this that becomes available.
Questions of my own: "What principles guide the shift from 100% face-to-face teaching to a blended learning model? In a 3 year undergraduate degree that is historically delivered through an on campus face-to-face model, where does one start to create a blended model - a % within each module or a % of modules across the 3 years or both?"
