http://www.heacademy.ac.uk/css/hea2/images/hea2-header-bg-swirl.pngA new report published today by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) has found that a blended approach to learning and teaching, where technology-enhanced learning takes place alongside more traditional approaches, should help students benefit from the value that lectures and seminars add to a higher education experience.
However, the report, Flexible Pedagogies: technology-enhance learning, goes on to emphasise that if students do not perceive traditional lectures and seminars to be valuable from a learning perspective then the age of campus-based education could be ending. It concludes that the best approach to higher education teaching is therefore to use technology to enhance the student learning experience by enabling greater flexibility.
