Blended learning from theory to practice

Education is no longer just about putting pen to paper and memorising facts. Blended education is a teaching method that integrates technology and digital media with traditional instructor-led classroom activities, giving students more flexibility to customise their learning experiences.

Blend education is the breath of our future. It optimises the time structure to reach the best balance between your work, family, social activity and new professional pursuits.

“The power of blended learning methods lies in their ability to improve the student experience. Studies have shown ‘blended learning’ reduces failure rates, improves learning, and boosts engagement. Blended learning combines the best aspects of face-to-face teaching and online instruction in ways that enable students to learn at their own pace. For example, a student in a blended learning course who masters a concept earlier than his peers can move on without having to wait, and conversely, a student who needs more time is not forced to move forward before fully grasping the subject.”

Online education focuses on theoretical knowledge. Face-to-face teaching focuses on practical skill training such as locating acupoints, needling techniques, pulse diagnosis, physical examination, patient communication and actual clinical treatment.

Study result, assessment and student feedback from our students have supported the benefit of blended education strongly.
