Blended learning

Blended learning courses allow you to leverage the best aspects of both face-to-face and out-of-class learning.

What is Blended Learning?

Blended learning refers to a course that shifts a significant amount of the work from in-person to outside of class. A typical blended course alternates between face-to-face, on-campus classes and course work that is guided by the instructor and completed by students on their own time. In-person classes are typically held on-campus during scheduled class time. Course work typically takes place on Moodle, offline, or as part of an experiential learning activity within a designated time frame. All blended courses will use the BL code in the SIS and will be assigned a room for the in-person activities.

At Concordia, a course is considered blended when 25% - 75% of traditional class time (excluding examinations) is shifted out of class. Faculties may set specific proportions for the mix of face-to-face and out-of-class activities. Please note that faculty must get approval from both the Chair and appropriate Associate Dean before blended learning can be adopted for their course.
