ON college students testify to benefits of hybrid learning

November 14, 2016

“Hybrid learning gives us the advantage of having technology available to learn in the way that we’ve grown used to,” says Niagara College student Allison Pillwein, who notes that completing tasks and quizzes for an online psychology class suited her learning style much more than classroom learning. The course’s instructor Laura Hotham adds that she finds the combination of classroom lecture and online activities gives students the opportunity they need to reflect on what they have learned in class and digest it. Susan Cluett, dean of the faculty of regional and continuing education at Fanshawe College, also notes that the school has increased its blended deliveries by 50% and its online deliveries by 75% to provide students with more learning options.
