Responsive Blended Learning or RBL combines active, supported online learning with contextually appropriate face-to-face learning opportunities, responding dynamically to the changing external context. This approach enables students to proceed with their studies alongside their peers, whatever pandemic-related restrictions are lifted or imposed in specific contexts. The RBL approach will allow students to begin the academic year on schedule, wherever they may be in the world. As conditions change, some students may be able to access face-to-face learning whilst others may continue to access learning online. Wherever students access their learning, they will remain part of the same core cohort of learners, sharing and developing their learning together. At the heart of this approach is our Heriot-Watt global learning community, our students and our staff collaborating together to inspire learning. More information on RBL can be found here.
