Face to Face learning
When it comes to learning, there is no one-size-fits-all method. Some students prefer to learn independently, while others prefer to be in a more structured environment. However, face-to-face learning has been shown to be an effective way to learn knowledge and skills. This is because it often combines different ways of learning, such as writing, reading, discussion, presentations, projects, group work, film clips and demonstration. This allows students to learn in a way that best suits their needs and preferences. In addition, face-to-face learning provides opportunities for students to receive feedback and support from their peers and instructors.
Advantages of Face to face learning
- Face to face interaction with learning instructor
- Enables more effective non-verbal communication
- Ability to motivate, inspire and engage
- Ability to discuss, collaborate, practice and role play
