Abstract

With advancement in technology, online education has gained popularity in higher education. Many universities are also looking to implement blended courses as a flexible option to learning. With the rise in the next generation learners, implementation of appropriate pedagogies and technologies that suite these learners is highly recommended. This review investigates various trends and innovative ideas for online and blended learning presented in higher education that can be considered as next generation pedagogies. A systematic review was undertaken to explore the trends and the data were evaluated in a descriptive manner. Collectively, the included studies (n=10) revealed innovative ideas for designing courses, implementing curriculum and pedagogies. Strategies that allow flexibility in curriculum, instruction; promote research skills; and provide real-world experience are considered as next generation pedagogies.
