University Facts and Statistics: Royal Roads University
Blended learning describes the combination of online learning and short residency periods that make up the delivery model for many programs at Royal Roads. This model minimizes disruption to the work and home lives of students and fosters team-based learning Ė on and off campus. The short residencies on our beautiful heritage campus in Victoria, B.C. give you direct interaction with other students and senior faculty members. The initial residency also includes team-building exercises and guidance to the online learning program component to ensure that distance never has to mean isolation. Royal Roads has developed unique interactive and collaborative tools that foster teamwork even when learners are scattered across the country or around the world. We use technology to extend and, in some cases, improve interaction and communication among learners and with faculty members.
