Enhance your learning experience with the right balance of in-class and remote learning.
Study as conveniently as possible.
Eastern College offers choices to make your learning experience as seamless as possible. Take some classes remotely to save yourself some travel time. Then come to campus only when you need to apply the theories you’ve learned.
What is hybrid learning?
Hybrid learning combines the convenience of remote learning with the face-to-face practical application of techniques delivered in class. Many of the programs that employ a hybrid learning approach are within our Healthcare faculty, where a practical application of techniques is a requirement.
Students can expect to learn much of the theory and understanding of concepts through remote classes delivered by their instructors via live video over the Internet. The remote classes are held at set times and are instructor-led. Once the learning shifts to the practical application and learning of techniques, students can expect to shift to in-class face-to-face learning.
What does hybrid learning look like?
- instructor-led classes
- follow the same schedule with classes held at the same time
- class discussions and debates continue through video
- same in-class content is reviewed (i.e. presentations, case studies)
- one-on-one student check-ins with instructors
- learn new communication skills and technology such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams to better prepare you for future work situations
- it is not online learning — you are guided through the learning with your instructor and classmates
- in-class learning portion focuses on practical application and hands-on techniques
Our teacher, Cindy, has been absolutely amazing at staying in contact with us, making sure we each feel understood. I feel like I can have direct contact with her throughout the day, which is so helpful in terms of understanding our course work and assignments. I feel supported by the Admin team as well; I know they're just a click away if I have questions. I just wanted to pass along some good news and a big thank you to the Eastern Team for making our education and safety a top priority, especially as we navigate a new situation that none of us have been in before. It really means the world.
