  • Friday, June 23, 2023
  • Time: 8:15am – 8:45am CT
  • Location: Yellow Rose Ballroom + Zoom


This featured session focuses on the newly revised OLC Blended Learning Scorecard which provides quality indicators in a variety of areas such as administrative support, technology, course development, faculty support, student support, institutional support, and evaluation and assessment. The 2023 version addresses diversity, equity, and inclusion along with clarity of many of the existing quality indicators. A Delphi Method research study was used to revise the Scorecard and will also be discussed. If your institution is offering blended learning, this is a must-attend session.
