Blended Learning

evidence numbers at a crime sceneSeveral NFSTC courses have been delivered using a blended learning approach, in which students complete preparatory work online before attending classroom- and scenario-based instruction. This approach enables all trainees to acquire the same level of fundamental knowledge about the area of study and reinforces skills learned in the classroom environment. This method maximizes class preparation, assessment and results, and minimizes time away from the job.

NFSTC presented a poster with additional information about blended learning at the 2010 National Institute of Justice conference.
