Learning environment

Most of the courses taught through FSSH have an online component that ranges from posting assignments and marks, to conducting in-depth discussions and sharing new learning.

Professors develop sophisticated course content using Blackboard, a campuswide learning management system that features interactive communication tools and online access to course materials.

Some courses are also offered in a hybrid delivery format that combines the traditional lecture/discussion method with web-based learning. You spend some of your scheduled class time learning inside the classroom and some of it outside the classroom engaged in web-based activities such as online group exercises, research tasks, online debates and webquests.

These activities are designed to enhance your writing, communication, negotiation and presentation skills, while deepening your understanding of course material through active learning.
