Zero waste: leveraging blended learning materials in traditional teaching

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentationTeaching


In this presentation, we explore the transition from a blended learning course back to traditional teaching methods, focusing on the use of an innovative "anthology" approach to repurpose digital materials. Originally a blended learning course featuring a mix of videos, notes, and quizzes, the course underwent a transformation to adapt to a more conventional format without sacrificing the accumulated digital resources.
Through this transition, an anthology of learning materials was created, which serves as supplementary support for student learning. These resources are accessible to students, providing a wealth of learning aids, ranging from mandatory activities to entirely optional exercises. Challenges encountered during this transition, specifically the increased workload and the maturity required from students, will be examined in depth. The talk will include an analysis of these issues, highlighting possible solutions and learnings gained from the process. This session promises to offer valuable insights for educators,
demonstrating the potential of effectively reutilizing blended learning resources within traditional teaching frameworks, while being mindful of workload issues, to enrich the students learning experience.
