FLEXIBILITY ON LEARNING PROCESS

José Palma, Martinha Piteira

Abstract

On this paper we present a methodology (FlexLearn), which allows flexibility on learning process. Using this methodology will be possible students to choose frequenting classrooms or online classes. On this paper we present some rules and procedures, which certainly may provide flexibility on the teacher’s curricular unity. We also present those we consider to be the best practices to the FlexLearn methodology application success. On a curricular unity that implements FlexLearn methodology, teacher will be able to provide instructions, contents and activities proposals, ensuring classroom and online activities students learning. The activities proposals contents, both for classroom and online students, must be equivalent, assuring the learning compliance.
