Implementation Q & A

When you first implemented blended learning, why did you choose that particular model? (has your model changed? why?)

We saw the Flipped Classroom showcased by a U.K.-based, U.S. teacher at the Royal Holloway Teaching & Learning conference in 2013 and decided to implement it. So far we have kept the Flipped Classroom model, but made refinements along the way.

What was one of your biggest challenges when going blended, and how did you overcome it?

We spent a lot of time preparing the staff, but it turns out that the students like change less than the staff, particularly the older students. We spent a lot of time in class and communicating with parents to overcome this.

What's the one piece of advice you'd give to emerging blended-learning programs?

Use trials to get buy-in from both staff and students
