Join us for the first of a three-part series on blended learning. Participants will learn strategies to purposefully balance online and face-to-face instruction by applying the principles of backward design and task-based learning. Using overarching course goals as a starting point, participants will begin defining the application of blended learning principles to their unique context.
Workshop Learning Objectives:
Upon completing this workshop, you should be able to:
1. Define blended learning in your own words.
2. Articulate an initial vision for blended learning by defining a specific learning goal or overarching course outcome.
3. Identify a type of technology and how you would use it to meet the learning objective in a task-based teaching sequence.
Skills, concepts, or competencies this workshop delivers:
- Theoretical frameworks of how people learn
This workshop is intended for:
- Staff who provide pedagogical and/or technological support for instructors or TAs
- Participants will be offered access to supplemental materials in Canvas on blended learning.
This session is the first in a three-workshop series on blended learning. It will be followed by:
- Workshop #2: Mixing It Up with Tech: Turning a Course Activity into a Blended Learning Experience (DigPed 002)
