Abstract

This qualitative collective case study presents perspectives of experienced lecturers at one Singapore polytechnic, adopting and adapting pre-COVID institution-wide blended learning (BL) initiatives to online (OL) Emergency Response Teaching
(ERT). Grounded theory techniques applied to pre and post-COVID interview data and verification, curricular materials and innovations from twenty three participants across thirteen national skills domain areas produced five distinct BL models and a range of strategies. Findings reflect the new normal in post-pandemic education, identifying implications for policy and practice on reculturing institutions, transforming curricula, reshaping pedagogical practices, redefining "work", industry partnerships and reviewing provisions for technology and professional development.
