Abstract

This presentation will share how a group of liberal arts faculty from Departments of Education, Biology, Chemistry, Math, and English used blended learning support the professional development of master teachers. 25 participating teachers from three diverse school districts attended several sessions and a 3 day summer workshop that was supplemented by ongoing blended learning support using Critical Friends Groups and Google Hangouts. Each university faculty member was assigned to a school as a disciplinary mentor and helped them improve their teaching and lesson plans with a goal of integrating a more interdisciplinary approach to the classroom teaching.

It is expected participants in this session will:

- identify ways to collaborate with their colleagues across disciplines

- identify ways to support area teachers in appreciating the liberal arts

- identify ways to help area teachers integrate and improve lessons that demonstrate the power of the liberal arts

This session will provide a brief overview of the work by the session leader and allow time for questions and answers from attendees.
