A Rookie’s Blended Learning Journey

A Rookie’s Blended Learning Journey
Start Date


In this talk, Prof. Cheung Ki Ling shared his personal experiences of converting a course (ISOM4770 Supply Chain Management), which he has been teaching for 20 years, into a blended learning one. Leveraging on the course’s strong emphasis on case-based learning, the teaching approach is interactive in nature, with case discussion, games and project presentation to engage students in class. His goal of using a blended approach is to integrate the best aspects of both face-to-face and online learning for students’ benefit. However, as a rookie of blended learning, more than often he had to do it by trial and error. But at the end all the efforts did pay off. In this sharing, he also talked about his motivation, preparation, execution and takeaways from such endeavor. ISOM 4770 students has also been invited to share their learning experience and thoughts on blended learning course.
