Effectiveness of Blended Learning

Blended_Learning  University of Buffalo educators compared teaching methods for their public health course.  One semester the teaching method was the traditional lecture format with some small group sessions.  The following year, the course was taught with a blended-learning approach, much like a flipped-classroom – all material was posted on line and students were expected to view it prior to the class.  Actual class hours were spent as active learning sessions.  Overall, performance on exams was higher in the blended-learning year than in the traditionally-taught year.  In addition, students’ feedback was more favorable for the blended teaching modality.–Lee Ann Schein, Ph.
