Responsive Blended Learning: A Way Forward?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Responsive Blended Learning was introduced in Heriot-Watt University Malaysia in response to the disruption to learning and teaching due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Besides responding to the pandemic lockdown, it also enables future learning and teaching activities in the digital era. It is designed as a response to any extraordinary situation, including the COVID19 pandemic. However, with the transition to the endemic phase since 1 May 2022, many learning and teaching activities are returning to pre-pandemic modes.

This study is intended to explore the perceived experience of the lecturers in adopting Responsive Blended Learning for future learning and teaching activities.

Semi-structured interviews were conducted to gather the rich experiences of the lecturers. Data were analysed using thematic coding via Nvivo as a tool.

Five themes emerged from the data which are increased flexibility, perceived student’s engagement, advanced learning experience, and comprehensive assessments.

Responsive Blended Learning is perceived as a useful tool for future learning and teaching. However, it was not always perceived as positive approach due to the increased workloads. It is suggested that future research can explore the views of students as the end users to ensure a broader understanding of Responsive Blended Learning.
