Faculty and Organizational Perspectives on Blended Learning
Oct 9, 2012, 10:30am-12pm
Cathy Gunn, head of the eLearning Group, University of Auckland, argues that the rationale for universities to move with a global trend of blending personal contact teaching and elearning in campus-based courses is clear in educational, economic and practical terms. Yet faculty can find themselves moving against an organizational tide to apply innovative blended learning strategies in institutions frustrated by teaching and learning innovation strategies that fail to achieve the intended goals. Investigations of this no-win situation in the Australasian university sector point to actions that are necessary to move in more productive directions. Discussion will follow of the relevance of the Australasian study to York.
