Tired of the same old lecture format? Looking for a more interactive and active learning classroom environment? Try blending your course! Hear about the successful case of our large plant pathology course “PP123: Plants, Parasites and People” for non-biology majors. Learn how we made student learning more personal, more engaging and more collaborative, making the class more rewarding for both students and instructors.
In our blended learning format, students learn core biological concepts online at their own time and pace. The face-to-face time is no longer about lecturing but expanding, analyzing and applying the learned concepts to historical and current cases. This class format gives unique opportunities for the students to think critically and connect their acquired knowledge in the real world. In this session you will hear about the tools, tips and tricks on how to successfully blend.
