Description

Recent experiences in live course delivery at ERAU's UK campus, combined with dramatic changes in the operational deployment tempo of US military forces assigned at these bases, creates both challenges and opportunities. Exploiting experiences with blended learning at The Open University, traditional learning at the University of Hertfordshire and other UK universities, and teaching concepts in use within the UK's military staff colleges leads to the proposed "Expeditionary" model for blended learning within the ERAU European Region. This model can deliver enhanced student involvement and increased enrollments, provided suitable changes in ERAU's underlying business model can be made. A Strengths I Weaknesses I Opportunities I Threats (SWOT) analysis highlights elements of this proposal, while indicating areas that need further examination.
