Abstract: 
In this paper, we share two blended learning approaches used at the National Institute
of Education in Singapore. We have been using these two approaches in the last
twelve years in many courses ranging from the diploma to graduate programs. For the
first blended learning approach, we integrated one asynchronous communication tool
with face to face tutorials, classroom discussions, and a reflection session. For the
second blended learning approach, we integrated two asynchronous tools with face to
face tutorials in a course. We discuss the theoretical foundation of the two blended
learning approaches. In addition, we share insights from these two blended learning
approaches, based on the students’ data (online postings, questionnaires, reflection
logs, and interviews), as well as our own reflections. Finally, we describe and discuss
several important lessons learned that could inform the design of future instructional
strategies in implementing blended learning in university teaching and learning
settings.
