BLENDED LEARNING IN SCHOOL OF VETERINARY MEDICINE

Hardie-Robb-cropped“Although I am aware that different is not necessarily better and that change can be hard, there is substantial evidence that blended learning strategies can improve student performance, retention, and participation and faculty should be open to evolving their teaching to include these strategies.  Eventually “Blended Learning” will just be “Learning” as institutions, faculty, and students become more aware of and embrace the many different teaching and learning methods that are available today, as well as those of the future.”
