The first week of June in Singapore might mark the start of a month-long school vacation for students, but this is rarely the case for teachers. There are workshops and conferences galore that they get to attend. For some, have to attend. This CNA piece on one such event gleefully reported how well “blended” learning […]

In December 2020, the Ministry of Education (MOE) announced in a press release that it would build on the home-based learning experience — made mandatory due to our COVID-19 lockdown — by “making Blended Learning a key feature of the schooling experience”.  The MOE defined blended learning (point 4 of the press release) as “a […]

The ingredients are that blended learning: is not one catch-all concept, strategy, or practice is about providing seamless experiences should not be confused with blended teaching should focus on the learner […]

In a previous entry, I mentioned how CeL was starting a blended learning series of professional development for teacher educators. This is the title slide of the first of that series.

Note: Blending is NOT just about combining online and face-to-face activities. It is also about seamlessly mixing different teaching strategies, tools, content, evaluations, etc. Each of my […]
