What is Flexible Learning?

Flexible learning is a learning method that gives students freedom in how, what, when and where they learn. Flexible learning environments are about

  • how physical space is used,
  • how students are grouped during learning
  • how time is used during teaching.

Flexible learning refers to the ability to adapt the pace, location and method of learning. For example, pacing allows students to take accelerated programs or learn part-time to ensure they have time to work on the side. Learning can take place in a variety of settings, including the classroom, at home via the Internet, while commuting, or as part of a work-study program. Mode refers to the way content is delivered through technology, typically through blended learning, fully online courses, or technology-enhanced experiences.

For instructors: It means evidence-based, technology-enabled teaching methods that improve the learning experience for a broader student community.
For students: It means more choice, engagement and success.
For all: It’s an evolving portfolio of activities and resources transforming education at UBC.
