Next Generation Learning Challenges has awarded Bryn Mawr College a $250,000 grant to study blended learning approaches to introductory STEM courses in a liberal arts setting. Over the 2011-2012 academic year several Bryn Mawr faculty members are experimenting with different ways of integrating open-license online tutorials and courseware into traditional classroom-based courses in these areas. The Provost’s Office will then study the impact that this “blended learning” model (i.e., the integration of online and classroom learning) has on course completion and performance, persistence in STEM majors, and college completion. As part of the grant, Bryn Mawr will share its findings and resources with partner institutions across the country.
2013 Blended Learning in the Liberal Arts Conference
We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our second annual conference on Blended Learning in the Liberal Arts on May 20-21 at the lovely Bryn Mawr College campus. As before, the focus of the conference will be on using blended learning to improve student learning outcomes and support the missions and cultures of liberal arts colleges. Come share ideas and information about findings, experiences, and best practices with LAC faculty and staff, and get some hands on experience with materials and technologies.
