Online learning and teaching methodologies

Most of our online modules fall into two categories of learning: behaviourism and constructivism. Sometimes a module or course may use a blend of both. 

Our online learning modules that follow these learning methodologies are usually presented according to one of three models: 

1) Flipped content (behaviourism)

2) Problem-based learning (constructivism)

3) Work-based learning (constructivism)
