"First in Line". Student Assessments of Pioneering Examples of Blended Learning

Roderick Flynn
Dublin City University, Ireland


This paper presents a study of how a cohort of students respond when they encounter a single module delivered via a blended/flipped learning approach at a point when the rest of their learning occurs in more traditional face-to-face learning environments. The study is based on a case study at the School of Communications, Dublin City University where the author has pioneered online delivery of module content blended with F2F moderation of small-scale seminar sessions based on the online content. The paper introduces the practical difficulties – for both tutor and student – of “being first” in the sense of creating course content and learning to interpret/process content delivered in a non-traditional fashion.
