The basic definition of “blended learning” or “hybrid” or “flipped” is to mean that students are getting first exposure to new content outside of class and during class they are being active learners, critical thinkers, and collaborative partners. First exposure to content might be reading, watching a video lecture or movie, or internet searches answering basic questions, etc. With hybrid learning professors will replace 50% or more of class meeting time with activities done outside of the class on students’ own time. In a traditional flipped course model, the class still meets during the scheduled times and most class sessions are using active learning strategies where students are using or analyzing knowledge gained prior to class.
