HENRI, James and LEE, Sandra. Why Hong Kong students favour more face-to-face classroom time in blended learning. Psicol. Esc. Educ. (Impr.) [online]. 2007, vol.11, n.spe, pp.103-111. ISSN 2175-3539. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-85572007000300010.
A three year study in student characteristics, needs and learning styles guided instructors at the University of Hong Kong Faculty of Education to improve teaching and learning in a core module: Information Literacy. A mixed-method approach analyzed data collected from undergraduate, in-service teachers in a BEd program, and helped instructors in the program to gain insight into the Hong Kong teacher working, post-service towards a BEd in Library and Information Science. Part-time students indicated a preference for a combination of online and face-to-face teaching, with more face-to-face class time in that mix. These findings would also be informative for other part-time programs using blended teaching and learning models.
