HOW CAN TEACHERS HELP THEIR STUDENTS HAVE A BETTER BLENDED LEARNING EXPERIENCE?

M. Wilkinson

National Institute of Education, Nanyang Technological University (SINGAPORE)
In a blended course, the teacher's online interaction with students can impact on the students' perceptions of the course (Moore, 2014). In a blended professional communication skills course for a large group of student teachers in Singapore, the participants experience a range of interactive activities with their teachers throughout the course, beginning with the teacher's introduction and framing of the course for participants. In this blended course, can the teacher's face-to-face (F2F) communications impact on the participants' blended learning experience? This presentation will first describe the design of the course which blends F2F and e-learning sessions for all participants, and offers some sessions as either F2F or e-learning. The presentation will then describe some of the communications about blended learning options that all participants receive, followed by specific communications that a subgroup received. In an end-of-term course improvement survey, the feedback suggested possible ways that teachers could approach their communications to their students about the e-learning options to enhance their students' blended learning experience.
