11 Blended learning: Online instruction is used in conjunction with face-to-face instruction to allow for more active learning in the classroom (role plays, simulations, etc.)

12 Why We Chose Blended Learning Collaborative problem solving and communication skills mature over years of practice – unlimited access to online materials Collaborative problem solving and communication skills mature over years of practice – unlimited access to online materials Skills acquisition is enhanced by reflective learning experiences Skills acquisition is enhanced by reflective learning experiences Active learning is the best use of limited classroom time Active learning is the best use of limited classroom time Theory and course content can be taught through interactive online materials Theory and course content can be taught through interactive online materials Skills introduced in the classroom can be reinforced through Web-based practice activities Skills introduced in the classroom can be reinforced through Web-based practice activities The autonomy and flexibility are well suited to adult learners – especially time pressured medical professionals The autonomy and flexibility are well suited to adult learners – especially time pressured medical professionals
