Implementeringen af fleksible videregående uddannelser i lærer- og radiografuddannelsen på University College North danner baggrund for denne undersøgelse af, hvorledes studerende orienterer sig i fleksible miljøer. Det afsløres, hvorledes de studerendes mentale, fysiske og virtuelle orientering i praktikken, på University College North, i hjemmet...
Article
Full-text available
The research indicates that there is a lack of knowledge about what characterizes learning in Blended Learning and how learning processes are characterized by these flexibly organized programs. Many research articles have merely framed what epistemological learning concept they lean on rather than examining what is the peculiar nature of learning i...
