Flex Learning: Helping Students Choose Their Path to Success
More Success When They Flex
Flexible learning, also known as modular learning, gives students some choice in their learning format.
They get to decide whether they want to approach lessons or even entire courses in face-to-face, online, or blended classrooms. And they can switch back and forth between the formats without penalty or disadvantage.
Flex learning is a lot like blended learning, but it shifts more of the control and responsibility to the students.
This gives them the freedom to explore different learning environments and figure out what works best for them.
They can also adjust as they go to accommodate the competing priorities inherent in higher education (and life).
And along the way, this discretion helps them develop their abilities to self-evaluate and monitor their progress.
Giving students more control over how, when, and where they learn can lead to better outcomes.
Flex Learning: Helping Students Choose Their Path to Success shows you how the flex model allows instructors to imaginatively redesign almost any course to better meet the needs of students and guide them toward greater academic success.
