TIE11 Technology in Education

Location: Skyline I

TUESDAY, 2:00 - 2:45 p.m.

Recent research in learning has discussed the merits of constructivist learning as well as the possibility of mixing instructivist and constructivist learning (using the Cronje model) to provide an active and comprehensive approach. This presentation will showcase a course that was redesigned as a blended course using Canvas, online tools, and the classroom. This course design may provide instructors and course developers who are not yet ready to go completely online take a first step in that direction and gain some of the value of the flipped classroom.
