  • iBLOCs for AY 14/15 Semester 1

  • The Centre for Instructional Technology (CIT) worked with several teaching staff to launch five Internal Blended Learning Online Courses (iBLOCs) in August 2014.

    These were created in collaboration with the Office of the Provost (PVO) and the Centre for Development of Teaching and Learning (CDTL).

    The iBLOCs are flipped classrooms. Students watch video lectures before attending class. Lecture time is then used for value-added activities. The iBLOCs this semester are:
