BLENDED LEARNING AND TEACHING FOREIGN LANGUAGES

Journal Title: Problems of Education in the 21st Century - Year 2008, Vol 5, Issue 4

Abstract

Teachers are all the time looking for different ways of increasing the quality of their teaching. At present the use of computers and new technologies has become an important aspect of foreign language learning. They have enabled the language teaching community to redefine some of the strategies and concepts of teaching and learning. In this climate computer-based distance learning courses have emerged. One of the supports of the distance learning is e-learning, which is widely used at the University of Hradec Králové. Sometimes e-learning is also exploited in the so-called blended learning. The talk will concentrate on the perception of the term blended learning, its possible model and contribution. In conclusion one of the representative blended courses will be introduced.
