Oct. 6 seminar for adults explains new class options for college education

10/2/2009 —
Adults interested in taking college classes may be surprised at the options that are available these days. In addition to traditional classroom classes, there are online courses and hybrid courses. Adults who want to learn about these kinds of options are invited to attend the adult seminar “Blended Learning at Penn State” on October 6, from 6 to 7 p.m., at the Corporate Training Center in the Eberly Building at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus. The event is free and open to the public.

“Blended learning” is a new term in post-secondary education and can help adults in their goal to complete a college degree. Blended learning—also referred to as “hybrid” classes—is set up so that 40 percent of the face-to-face class time is replaced by online or other instruction. This allows adults more time at home and offers more flexibility with a work schedule. Blended learning can also provide accessibility to courses needed to complete programs, and students may pace themselves throughout the course.

The seminar is geared toward adults who wish to complete a college degree, but who may not have a flexible schedule when it comes to family or work. Online and e-learning options will also be discussed. For more information, call 724-430-4124.
