Dr. Michael Stahl Talks About the PEMBA Blended Program

Dr. Michael Stahl is the William Stokely Distinguished Professor of Business and the Director of PEMBA, a unique and highly successful one-year long Executive MBA program for Physicians. The program’s blended delivery mode consists of four week-long residence periods on the University of Tennessee campus and weekly 3-hour distance learning sessions. The PEMBA curriculum features a holistic view of business disciplines, student assignments and projects applied directly to a learner’s organization, student peer learning, and leadership development.

In the OIT Faculty Spotlight video, Dr. Stahl shares his insights about the PEMBA blended program: what a typical distance learning week looks like; how student engagement is facilitated in live online sessions, what kind of support students receive to be successful learners, instructional strategies for peer learning, and benefits of a blended program.

Whether you are an administrator or an instructor thinking about trying out a blended course delivery mode, Dr. Stahl has a wealth of useful information for you.
