WHAT IS BLENDED LEARNING?

Blended Learning encompasses a mixture of online and face to face working methods and learning activities where the students actively work with learning content, individually and in collaboration with each other and with the Instructor.

Blended Learning tends to outperform classroom learning by relatively large magnitudes, probably because the E- learning used in Blended Learning often uses more effective learning methods. Blended Learning is not just about efficency, but also about learning more effectively.

Grassroots courses:  2 Hours Virtual and 2 Hours In Person.

For those coaches who wish to coach Spring 2021/ Fall 2021 they should adhere by the Grassroots Pathway for coaching course requirements - with courses now in a Blended Format all coaches should attend an upcoming Blended Learning Course.  2 Hours Virtual and 2 Hours Field.
