Johns Hopkins Launches Mixed Modality Courses

Two new graduate-level STEM classes will use a mixed modality teaching model that combines onsite and online instruction.

Advanced Academic Programs (AAP) at John Hopkins University announced two new graduate courses that will use a mixed modality teaching model, combining onsite and online learning.

The first two AAP classes incorporating this education model will be Biochemistry, part of the Biotechnology master’s program, and Molecular Biology, part of the Bioinformatics master’s program. Both classes will be hosted at the Frederick Center for Research and Education in Science and Technology (CREST) for the upcoming fall semester.

A regional higher education center, CREST serves as a local onsite alternative for students who would otherwise need to travel to the university or take the courses entirely online. The center hosts a number of local Frederick student cohorts, offering a diverse learning environment focused on area STEM activities.

“The mission of CREST has always been driven by the recruitment and retention needs of our area STEM employers and by the unmet graduate level STEM needs of the region,” said Sue Houghton, planning director for CREST, in a prepared statement. “We will be reaching out even further to the Frederick STEM community to make sure they know this exceptional opportunity is now available to them.”

Only students accepted into one of the aforementioned master’s programs can enroll in the courses. Further information is available on the Frederick CREST site.
