In 2012, the University embarked on a strategy to update its curriculum in relation to providing a range of learning options for students. From here, Blended Learning was designed to provide more flexibility for students, and provide them with more engaged learning activities both on and off campus.
Blended Learning includes on campus face-to-face interactive teaching, online learning activities, and community work based activities or placements.
Blended Learning works best when it is built on a shared view of curriculum. Therefore, when building the foundations of our course programs, the School of Business ensures that we work with both academic staff and the curriculum team. The School aims to support innovation, and encourage academics
to acquire new skills to engage students, and blend appropriate online technology into our programs. The School of Business has a commitment to foster continuous improvement, to grow and develop flexible, effective learning experiences for our students by continuing to develop our blended programs both
now, and into the future.
"In the School of Business, our work in Learning and Teaching is more a process of creating a community garden - a place that nourishes good teaching, and provides students with the fruits of an effective, flexible, learning experience."
