Hybrid learning combines the convenience of remote learning with the face-to-face practical application of techniques delivered in class. Many of the programs that employ a hybrid learning approach are within our Healthcare faculty, where a practical application of techniques is a requirement.
Students can expect to learn much of the theory and understanding of concepts through remote classes delivered by their instructors via live video over the Internet. The remote classes are held at set times and are instructor-led. Once the learning shifts to the practical application and learning of techniques, students can expect to shift to in-class face-to-face learning.
