If you’re familiar with higher education, then chances are, you’ve heard of blended learning. Just in case you haven’t - blended learning is a mixture of online learning and live classes or lectures.
Essentially, you have the benefit of online learning but also the benefits of getting to come into class and joining in on discussions and workshops based around their chosen subject.
With in-person classes held once a month, students spend the majority of their time learning online. These online classes are in the form of webinars and offer a more informal and flexible way to learn from the comfort of your own home.
Why blended learning? And why Griffith College?
Blended learning at Griffith College is something we take immense pride in and we aim to provide the best blended courses in Ireland to all of our students. There are a number of benefits to this style of learning and coupled with our swathes of exciting courses, there is bound to be one suited to your needs.
Maintaining a healthy work-life balance is something we at Griffith College prioritise above most and blended learning can help our students do just that. With on-campus classes only once a month, you can ditch the dreaded rush hour traffic and do the majority of your studying at home on your own time. It also lets you live further from campus if you want to stay closer to work and family.
Each student is assigned a mentor and study group. Support is crucial for any student and we have this in abundance at every step of your programme. Having a solid support network is what gives students the confidence to get the best learning experience from blended learning and we haven’t skimped out one bit.
A variety of online tools and interactive learning platforms are readily available to students including discussion forums, quizzes, Wiki projects and blogs.
