Abstract

The debate over whether online activities enhance learning has also been occurring in legal education. For Cardiff Law School, where pedagogy dictates the ‘blend’ of traditional and online support, the question has been whether complementing or substituting traditional teaching activities with e-learning tasks and resources (e-blend) can enhance Cardiff Law School students’ overall pedagogical experiences. This paper reports on a project that explored aspects of this dilemma by investigating Cardiff Law School students’ perceptions, with a particular focus on the value they placed on e-learning resources and tasks. The research methodology adopted integrates quantitative data (student results) with a qualitative analysis (semi-structured focus group interviews).
