Digital Blended Learning (DBL) is a key means of achieving IIHS’ core objectives of access and inclusion. We do this by oﬀering scalable high-quality content on interdisciplinary urban practice, science and studies in an anytime, anywhere format, at low-to-no cost.
The vision of DBL is to ‘become the go-to resource for all things Urban in India and in the world’. To achieve this vision, the key objectives of IIHS’ Digital Blended Learning Programme are as follows:
- Take conversations and debates on urban practice, science and studies to a wide audience including academics, students and practitioners across India and the world, through a combination of standalone online learning courses and blended learning programmes.
- Create a rich repository of digital learning assets on urban practice, science and studies, for teachers, learners and researchers.
- Provide learning content from experts in India and from across the world in multiple languages.
- Enable strong peer-to-peer learning experiences and collaborative problem-solving opportunities around some of the most pressing urban challenges of our age.
- Enrich the experience of learners and participants of various IIHS courses by supplementing classroom sessions with rich multimedia content, both in-class as well as before and after the class.
The DBL Programme has been working on a wide range of initiatives – from completely online courses to digital learning material for classroom teaching to standalone micro-learning objects.
