Join Malcolm Brown and Veronica Diaz as they moderate this webinar with Jennifer Spohrer, the coordinator for academic technology initiatives at Bryn Mawr College and the project coordinator for a grant-funded study of blended learning in a liberal arts college context. Prior to 2011, studies at large universities and community colleges showed that blended learning, or the combination of online and face-to-face instruction, improved student and faculty satisfaction, student engagement, and student learning outcomes when compared with either fully online or fully face-to-face courses. Yet it wasn’t clear how a blended approach would translate to the environment of smaller, more residential colleges or whether one would see similar benefits. In 2011–13, Bryn Mawr College led a 40 team of liberal arts colleges in a Next Generation Learning Challenges grant-funded study to answer those questions. Spohrer will share the team’s findings and discuss when, why, and how liberal arts faculty might want to adopt a blended approach to their courses.
