The Brandman iDEALTM represents both the ultimate educational experience for adult students through active and engaged learning and the best preparation for career success in today's technology-driven, networked world.
Leveraging Brandman's heritage of educational excellence as part of the 150-year-old Chapman University System, we developed the Brandman iDEALTM (Instructional Design for Engaged Adult Learning), offering an innovative approach to educating adult students. The Brandman iDEALTM is "learning-centered" rather than "teacher-centered," using technology to enhance and activate the learning experience. As a result, all campus-based courses are now offered in a blended model, combining face-to-face instruction with independent and collaborative online learning.
What are the Benefits?
"The Brandman iDEALTM provides the opportunity to combine the best components of both the face-to-face and online environments. It is not a compromise between the two alternatives, it's a superior synthesis."
- Walter Bunch, Senior Lecturer, Brandman University
