Aaron Sahunta – Digital Student Ambassador
This video within this blog was originally taken from the Future of Blended Learning Conference held on the 24th March 2021. Below you can find the abstract for the session plus the corresponding video.
This presentation will go through the benefits of blended teaching and the positive implications from being taught a mixture of online and face to face lectures. It will state on how online teaching ever since it became an essential use to education all around the world has really been shadowed mainly by the drawbacks it has, especially in situations regarding higher education. However, after being a student who is used to it ever since starting university, it does have its positives.
The presentation will mention the conceptual basis of university being a new experience for most students starting university by taking in all the factors that they never had to take in before. It allows students to then become more aspirational in their lives, look at where they are currently and possibly plan what they want to do during the few years they will take to study at a higher education level. Furthermore, in anecdotal terms, blended learning has been a rather large factor for university life.
This is due to the mix of online and in person learning offering students to take in more initiative and better themselves for the wider world. This will be stated from the difference between online and face to face learning in a student’s perspective, shedding light onto online learning with factors such as efficiency and flexibility. The presentation will then offer various tips for students to use in day to day life which has multiple positive implications and then followed by a conclusion.
