Blended learning program launched

San Antonio, Texas – July 8, 2011 -The University of the Incarnate Word announces the August launch of a daytime blended learning program from the School of Extended Studies for its non-traditional students attending the Adult Degree Completion Program (ADCaP).

The blended education model that ADCaP will incorporate into its Business Administration and Criminal Justice programs is designed to meet the growing demand from working professionals who prefer not to miss out on the traditional face-to-face classroom experience, but require the flexibility inherent with online learning.

Students of the blended learning program will meet in class with their professor one day a week. Additional assignments and discussions will be completed online. This format will cut the classroom time in half, while increasing the student/professor interaction through the online tools.

"We decided to offer classes in the daytime to meet the needs of students who cannot attend our evening classes." said Vincent Porter, dean of the School of Extended Studies. "We chose a blended format to accommodate an adult student’s busy schedule. Blended formats give students a flexible delivery model that combines the traditional face-to-face classroom setting with the convenience of online learning tools. "

Beginning with the first 8-week Fall term, ADCaP will offer four blended courses at the Dual Enrollment Center located at 1621 N. Main St. on Tuesday mornings for Criminal Justice majors. At the Northwest Center at 9729 Datapoint Drive, blended courses will be offered on Tuesday and Saturday mornings for Business majors.
