Principles of flexible learning

Services and supports provided by this unit are grounded in the principles of flexible learning:

Flexible learning incorporates both blended and online approaches so that students can choose how, when, and where they study.
Accessible design of online course components enables all students to access their web-based content and educational technologies regardless of their location, experience, device, or abilities.
Flexible learning requires a focus on designing online learning environments that are respectful and supportive of audiences who typically face barriers when entering post-secondary education: women, First Nations, students with physical and learning challenges, new Canadians and students who are located in remote and/or rural locations.
A rapid prototyping development model is incorporated to test assumptions, solicit learner feedback and push boundaries in flexible delivery. Research agendas are developed and results are published.
Creative options for face-to-face components are developed as faculty begin to redesign their face-to-face experiences to make best use of both online and face-to-face modalities while also saving costs associated with the use of campus facilities.
Flexible learning programs can be modularized, exported, reconfigured, and shared with other courses to enhance traditional face-to-face delivery.
Flexible learning needs to be closely linked to the world of work. Employers will be engaged as partners in the design and delivery process to ensure that both the content and delivery methods are relevant, feasible, and reflective of workplace requirements.
