Blended Learning in the School of Human Ecology

“I am a consumer behavior researcher. Two decades ago, I conducted a research in the online shopping space. At that time, there were two thoughts – either online will take over the brick-and-mortar stores, or online will never make it. But my forecasting research on consumer behaviors predicted that those businesses that embrace both venues will do the best. I think this theory applies to learning. Those universities and programs that embrace both technology and classroom learning + experiential learning on campus and in the fields will be the ones that will prosper. Kudos to UW and UW faculty members who are embracing it all for student learning.”
