Blended Learning Workshops

FIT's Precollege Blended Learning Workshops allow students who are in NYC for a limited period of time to study at FIT, experience FIT’s dynamic and diverse college campus, meet like-minded peers, and explore the cultural vibrancy of New York City. After spending three days on-campus, students will continue their course of study online. Blended workshops are a wonderful way to introduce high school students to the online learning experience under the supportive guidance of our Precollege instructors. Like our traditional workshops, courses are designed to inform students about the industries FIT serves while introducing them to some of the unusual and creative topics that we specialize in at FIT.

Program Details: Students attend 3 consecutive face-to-face sessions at FIT with their peers. They are then presented a project or challenge to complete on their own over the following two weeks. Students will log on to the "online classroom” where they can find instructional resources, participate in discussions with their classmates, post questions for their instructors and submit final projects. 

Registration March 15 through June 10, 2017

Cost (HS Workshop): $242*  
(Students may purchase one workshop for the week)  *$15 registration and $15 materials fee included
