Abstract

Blended learning courses combine online and face-to-face teaching, ideally by combining the strengths of both methods in ways that complement the material being taught. This paper describes a course redesign that resulted in the shift from a face-to-face to a blended approach and presents the resulting benefits seen after the new approach had been in use for a year. The paper will describe the rationale for the instructional decisions made during the course redevelopment and analyze the outcomes of those decisions. Although the redesigned course was part of a medical school clerkship, these instructional decisions could be applied to any course in which students spend part or all of their time away from campus.
