Description of the project
Blended learning, sometimes referred to as blended or hybrid learning, is a teaching and learning model composed of face-to-face classes or a tutorial component, combined with an online learning component. According to data from the Texas Adult Education Management System (TEAMS), adult learners who participate in blended learning outperform students who only attend a traditional classroom, as well as students who spend more than 50% of their contact hours at a distance.
Blended learning allows students to be more flexible, learning at different rates and gaining greater autonomy. Learners in adult education centres across Europe face similar challenges, such as lack of basic skills, lack of time due to family and work obligations, poor learning habits, lack of motivation, financial issues, etc. Therefore, the organisation and development of blended learning courses, which can be tremendously helpful for adult education organisations to respond to the needs mentioned above.
