At The IIE’s Varsity College we are proud of and passionate about our shift away from the ‘traditional lecturing’ methodology to our blended-learning strategy – the VCBlend. This blended-learning strategy extends learning beyond the confines of the classroom and creates opportunities for our students to work collaboratively, with peers and their educators, to construct their understanding of concepts. Student engagement is supported by the use of a learning management system (LMS) and the online learning materials that have been developed to underpin our teaching strategy.
The Blended Learning environment is such that it encourages and promotes independent study, research, and online engagement, both in and outside of the classroom. To this effect The IIE’s Varsity College supports this learning environment by promoting campus environments that will enable such learning, and by encouraging students to BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) so as to develop the necessary academic and digital literacies over the duration of this qualification.
This student-focused approach compels our students to be accountable for their learning while developing the critical skills they will need to thrive in the rapidly changing 21st century work environment.
As such, academic life for our students is dynamic, challenging and relevant
