10 Structured Class Meeting Times –Face-to-Face including lab time –Limited by space and schedule Online sections Three-credit courses Challenges with evening/weekend Challenges with Internet Sections Inconsistency in content and learning Low enrollment courses cancelled

11 Computer apps courses now one-credit –More flexibility, more choices Learner-centered technology –myitlab Self-directed learning with consistent methodologies Correlate to industry certifications Course information online

12 Assignments available anytime, any place, any space Face to face instruction as needed –More efficient and effective instruction –Student specific Testing is face to face Immediate feedback with myitlab Enrollment through 10th week

13 Individualized, student-specific, face- to-face instruction Efficient, effective use of time and space Exploration of software –myitlab

14 Active Learning –Target a variety of learning styles With myitlab and individualized instruction –Time spent on what is not understood -- not topics already mastered Students who have to retake a course –Dont start at beginning (topics already mastered) –Greater success on retakes

15 Tuned Blended Learning –Works well at community college level –Makes most of face to face time Move away from lecture-based comfort zone (autopilot) Allows high-quality, face-to-face personal teaching Encourages Academic Tenacity
