Implementing the Socratic Approach in Blended Courses

Brigham Young University Idaho has developed a methodology for combining the Socratic approach with simple online tools to create a hybrid lectures that guild students through peer teaching and assist them in preparing for classes.

A tutorial for this learning model is available at http://www.byui.edu/learningmodel/src/default.htm . One of the really nice things about this site is that it teaches the viewer how to use the model using the methods discussed in the tutorial, thereby immersing the viewer in the learning experience.

If you would like to read an article about the history and development of the learning module point your browser to the Campus Technology article titled “A Socrates Redux in the BYUI Learning Model“.
