  10. 10. Deconstructing Blended Learning 14
  11. 11. • The blurring of face-to-face learning and teaching and online learning is a significant shift for both learners and staff of universities. • This disintegration of the distinction and the growing acceptance that learning occurs in different ‘places’ presents both exciting and challenging opportunities for higher education. 15 Blended Learning
  12. 12. •Flexible learning provides opportunities to improve the student learning experience through flexibility in time, pace, place, mode of study, teaching approach, forms of assessment and staffing. 16 Flexible Learning
  13. 13. •Blended and flexible learning is a design approach that examines the relationships between flexible learning opportunities, in order to optimise student engagement. (Keppell, 2010, p. 3; Garrison & Vaughan, 2008). 17 Blended and Flexible Learning

  22. 22. 25 Interactive learning (learner-to-content) Networked learning (learner-to-learner; learner-to-teacher) Student-generated content (learner-as-designers). Connected students (knowledge is in the network) Learning-oriented assessment (assessment-as-learning) (Keppell, 2014). 26 Interactions
  23. 23. Distributive Leadership 27

  25. 25. Distributive Leadership •Characteristics: collaboration, shared purpose, responsibility and recognition of leadership irrespective of role within an organisation. •Central premise: good leadership is foundational to good learning and teaching practice. 29
  26. 26. Changing Mindsets 30
  27. 27. Design thinking by its nature is strategic and future focussed. It is a thoughtful and considered pedagogical approach to ensure relevance for both learners and teachers. 31
  28. 28. 25 Teacher Mindsets Interactive learning (learner-to-content) Networked learning (learner-to-learner; learner-to-teacher) Student-generated content (learner-as- designers). Connected students (knowledge is in the network) Learning-oriented assessment (assessment- as-learning) (Keppell, 2014). 32
  29. 29. 25 Learner Mindsets Digital literacies (competencies, fluency, design) Seamless learning (formal, informal, F2F, blended, online, mobile) Self-regulated learning (scaffolded, strategic, autonomous) Learning-oriented assessment (authentic, negotiated, self-assessment) Life-long learning (short-term, future-focussed, being a learner) Learning pathways (prescribed, electives, open) (Keppell, 2015) 33
  30. 30. Institutional Mindsets •Encouraging teacher and learner mindsets •Embracing blended learning throughout all learning and teaching and assessment •Utilising distributive leadership to create strategic change 34
