About  |  Schedule

During the pandemic, many educators transitioned quickly to remote learning. As we move forward, educators need to be prepared for any type of natural disaster, not just a pandemic. Taking advantage of best practices in blended learning, we can create new and innovative learning experiences that give students the best of both worlds. 

Join us as we network, discuss and learn more about blended learning.

Blended Learning is Our Future, Now More than Ever

The strategic combination of f2f and online experiences in individual courses is likely to rise in prominence as the pandemic wanes. As a desirable middle-ground between the pandemic ubiquity of online tool use and the desire for safe, value-add f2f experiences, blended has the opportunity to fulfill the promise of being the “best of both worlds.” Drawing from decades of experience with effective institutional blended experience and influenced by emerging trends in faculty and student expectations, this session will offer clarifying perspectives on effective blended course design and institutional implementation post-pandemic.
