Learn + Interact + Network + Collaborate
Our ongoing philosophy for innovative educational programming
We’re always looking for new and better ways to help you and other students get the education you need in a format that fits your life. At Hiram College, the driving force behind this commitment is known as Learn + Interact + Network + Collaborate, or LINC. It’s our multi-year approach which ensures you have access to the latest and most effective teaching tools, technologies and resources designed to enhance your learning experience.
LINC means you have options
Hiram College serves students of all kinds – traditional, career changers, working professionals and more. Through LINC, we’ve developed three convenient learning formats designed to meet your needs no matter which segment you belong to:
Web-enhanced format – Designed to benefit students enrolled in traditional face-to-face courses, our web-enhanced format uses the internet as a tool to post information, provide helpful learning resources, deliver relevant content and facilitate increased interaction and connectivity outside the classroom.
Blended format – An excellent option for busy students, our blended format allows you to take a combination of on-campus and online classes as you work toward your degree. It typically reduces classroom time by 50 percent or more and is great for students who want face-to-face interaction mixed with convenient online learning.
Online format – Working professionals and distance learners will benefit most from our 100 percent online programs, which foster improved interaction between students and instructors, students and course work, and students with other students. Our comprehensive online format allows you to earn a quality education wherever and whenever it works for you.
LINC means instructors are fully trained
Delivering high-level education through three unique formats ultimately starts with your instructors. Part of LINC’s focus is ensuring that your instructors are well-versed and well-trained to take maximum advantage of the tools and technologies you’ll be using in and outside the classroom.
