Abstract: The purpose of this proposed blended course design is to develop inter-professional communication and collaboration in learning and build connections and relationships between students from different faculties. It is anticipated that time spent in inter-professional education can enhance the collaboration, competence and capabilities of students to engage inter-professionally in future practice. The proposal of a blended-learning format provides a means to accommodate the inherent scheduling challenges between different faculties, and incorporates the potential of learning from face-to-face, simulation, online learning, and social media experiences. Consideration of a blended design advances the utilization of technology to facilitate inter-professional, collaborative inquiry learning between undergraduate students from two different faculties. The offering of a blended approach employing various means of technology endeavours to demonstrate an innovative approach to teaching and learning within inter-professional healthcare education.
