Blended Learning Technology: Understanding the Impact on Pedagogy and Student Learning
2012 Call for Submissions is Now Open: Submit Your Application by June 29, 2012
This year’s challenge is to demonstrate the transformative value of Echo360’s blended learning solution on higher education. The Blended Learning Grants program has generated many outstanding studies surrounding the impact of lecture capture technology on blended learning, including its influence on recruitment, retention and learning outcomes. But there is still plenty of research to do!
This year, Echo360 will be offering six US$10,000 grant awards, including an inaugural Newcomer’s Grant Award which will be set aside for a selected proposal from an institution that has been using Echo360’s lecture capture solution for two years or less. The Community Grant Award will fund a research project selected by the higher education community. To select the Community grant, Echo360 will publish proposal summaries online and the recipient will be determined by majority vote from fellow senior researchers, technologists and others involved in their institutions’ blended learning technology programs.
Echo360 believes in the power of blended learning to enhance the teaching and learning process for both instructors and students and are committed to engaging with the international community who use lecture capture technology as part of their blended learning model.
Originally launched in 2009, and now in its fourth year, it is the first research program of its kind.
