This workshop aims to impart the skills of designing, implementing and facilitating learning in an active blended learning environment. The topics that would be covered in this workshop include the theoretical perspective of blended learning and deep learning, principles of flipped learning, and how to design for anchor activities. As a participant, you will get to experience the process of learning as a student and as a designer. More importantly, you will be part of a community of practitioners engaged in active blended learning at SUSS, by improving on and contributing to a repository of active blended learning lesson plans and, the training of future instructors.

At the same time, facilitation is often regarded as an important cornerstone for active learning to take place. This is an essential skill particularly in a blended learning approach where learners are to participate in activities during the face-to-face sessions. This workshop aims to equip instructors with the knowledge and skills of facilitation.
