BLENDED LEARNING FOR A MASTER COURSE ON ENGINEERING AND ENVIRONMENTAL GEOLOGY

  1. 1. BLENDED LEARNING FOR A MASTER COURSE ON ENGINEERING AND ENVIRONMENTAL GEOLOGY Doan Huy Hien, PhD Asian Institute of Technology in Vietnam
  2. 2. Outlines• Traditional training model• Elearning model• Blended traning model• Environmental Engineering Geology Course• Course schedule
  3. 3. Traditionally Learning Model http://psyc208.wordpress.com/common-problems/
  4. 4. Advantages of Traditionally Learning Model • Closely interact between lecturer and trainers • Respond immediately to an individual student’s question • Conduct secure assessments • Simultaneously view common materials. • Give individualized assignments
  5. 5. Problem of Traditionally Learning Model• Balancing between friends and school• Awareness• Self management• Planning• Lack of interest in materials• Trying to cram• Not knowing the expectation of the course• Not enough time• Not remembering things http://psyc208.wordpress.com/common-problems/
  6. 6. Problem of Traditionally Learning Model Make the learners inactive
  7. 7. Newly Learning Approach
  8. 8. Elearning modelIs generally defined as any formof learning that utilizes anetwork for delivery,interaction, or facilitation .
  9. 9. Elearning Mission Elearning is the future schooling for providing: education for all and increasing potential ofinformation telecommunication technology (ITC) to meetdifferent educational objectives
  10. 10. Elearning Objectives• Expands opportunity of education• Expands quality of learning.• Increases delivery of learning.• Improves efficiency of teaching.
  11. 11. Future of Elearning• Nobody has the exact answer• Graduates will be exposed to new information in one year than their grandparents in a lifetime.• Memorizing facts will have lower value, than utilizing information for decision-making.
  12. 12. Future of Elearning, cont’d• Multi-career.• Change of career.• Lifelong learning.• Just-in-Time (JIT) learning.• Career development: learning by the corporate• Telecommuting learning: distance
  13. 13. Traditional vs. ElearningTraditional Learning Elearning Teacher Centered Student Centered Single Media Multimedia Isolated Work Collaborative WorkInformation Delivery Information Exchange Factual-based Skills-based learning Learning Bricks & Board Technology-enabled learning Push approach Pull approach
  14. 14. Potential Elearning: Pros•New opportunities to •Customized and flexiblemaximize learning potentials learning•No commuting time or travel •No constraints ofcost geographical location•Learning while working •Learning at her/his own pace•Just-In-Time (JIT) learning •Learning to fit busy schedule•Re-tooling for the •No campus space isunemployed required•Probably less costly •Greater learning resources available
  15. 15. Potential Elearning: Cons•Instructors need to be •Needs of students foreffective equipment and service providers•Hard for instructors to move •Academic integrity of onlinetraditional content online students•Time consuming for •Lack face-to-face interactionindividualized feedback•Technical training of •Lack of regulations oflearners learning practices and quality assurance•Effectiveness of •Lack of e-learning cultureassessments
  16. 16. Potential Elearning: Cons•Equity of access to learners •E-learning must beof different backgrounds integrated into the mainstream accreditation and quality assurance – guidance, design delivery and assessment•Requires new skills and •Lack of policies ofresponsibility from learners intellectual property rights to protect e-learning content authors•Content developers have to •Lack of social interactivebe trained in instructional aspects of campus anddesign, learning theory classrooms
  17. 17. Blended Learning Model “… the single greatest unrecognised trend in higher education today” (Young, 2002, President of Penn State University). “Blended learning the thoughtful integration of face-to-face and Elearning experiences. The basic principle is that face-to-face oral communication and written communication are optimally integrated such that the strengths of each are blended into a unique learning experience…” (Garrison & Vaughan, 2007 p.5) Calls for a change in ‘culture’ of teaching.
  18. 18. Blended Learning Methodology http://elearning.kau.edu.sa/Pages-bl.aspx
  19. 19. Blended learning benefit• Increase the effectiveness of the learning process.• Reducing the cost and time required to learn.• Increasing learner satisfaction about the learning process.• Increase the number of student.• Increase the motivation to the learning process through the use of multimedia
  20. 20. Why AIT conduct blended learning?• AIT has a long history on graduate training programs• AIT has an excellent number of faculties with international standard• AIT has an excellent IT facility
  21. 21. Blended learning benefit• Provide the three choices for our learners (F2F,Online,Blended).• It works to improve educational outcomes.• Blended learning allows us to make the most of technology to achieve specific educational goals.• Blended Learning can utilize learning and work .
  22. 22. Environmental Engineering Geology (EEG)• EEG combines the contents of both environmental geology and engineering geology, the course is to equip students with an understanding of how geology interacts with major Environmental problems and issues facing people and society, and also provide a balanced and comprehensive understanding of the methods and approaches that are useful in dealing with the great variety of geologic conditions encountered in engineering works.
  23. 23. EEG Course Output• Understand on the formation of soil/rock• Understand on the distribution of natural resource and geohazards• Understand on the interacts between geology and environment
  24. 24. EEG Course Output• Consult on decision making concerning the use of water, minerals, energy resources, and our response to and preparedness for natural hazards.• Plan and design for site investigation with optimum solution• Groundwater modeling and design for land subsidence analysis
