Designing and Instructing Hybrid Open Learning Spaces Model to Support Lifelong Learning Engagement
Crawford, Caroline M.
International Journal on E-Learning, v15 n3 p285-312 Aug 2016
With a focus upon open and lifelong learning understanding, the real world delineation between formalized higher education graduate school efforts and professional career position lines may be suggested as being blurred. This case study offers an analysis of one university instructor's efforts towards developing hybrid learning spaces that specifically focus upon not merely knowledge acquisition but the implementation of learned information within real world professional work environments, which suggests not only the business and industry realm, but also the elementary and secondary school education environments, medical education, and higher education. The outcome of the discussion is a hybrid open learning spaces model. Through this style of instructional design at the graduate level of higher education instruction, the work place professionals become engaged and participatory within the higher education coursework environment.
