Hands-on Workshop

Abstract

New to blended learning? Interested in the idea of blended a course but not sure how to get started? This workshop is for you. We will focus on two questions:

  • Why blend a course?
  • How do I get started?

Prior to the workshop, participants will be asked to review materials related to the first question, with ideas for improving learning outcomes, increasing engagement, and incorporating highly effective pedagogical practices into a course through blended learning. We will discuss these ideas in person to kick-off the workshop, and then participants will work individually and in small groups to identify pedagogical goals or challenges for their courses, brainstorm strategies for using blended learning to achieve those goals and/or address those challenges, and develop concrete, manageable "next steps" for getting started.
