The presentation slides for my talk at the 2nd Blended Learning Symposium on 28 November 2013 at UCSI University, Kuala Lumpur. The talk first focuses on Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and how they will play a critical role in triggering Higher Education institutions around the world to accelerate the urgency to innovate their learning and teaching models. The second half of the talk will focus on how we can transform the students’ learning experiences using a blended approach infusing Flipped Classroom, Brain-Designed learning, Gamification, more authentic assessment methods, etc.
