ABSTRACT
In addressing the needs of a diverse range of students on a highly practical vocational Engineering course, it has been natural to adopt and develop a blended approach to teaching and learning. While lectures can provide an effective method of transmitting information, there are better ways of stimulating students (Bligh, 2000). Yoon and Lim (2007) describe blended learning as ‘a purposeful mix of delivery media (particularly face-to-face and various forms of technologies) to improve learning/performance.’ They not only define blended learning technically, but also describe it as being concerned with the mix of people and their access to each other. At Ravensbourne College, the small Broadcast Engineering class size (between 15 and 25 students per year) lends itself perfectly to an interactive lecture approach for face-to-face teaching.
