Brief Abstract

This online asynchronous session is part of a custom blended learning experience designed for engagement before, during, and after the on-site OLC Blended Learning Symposium. 

This session explores current blended learning trends and challenges through unique collaboration opportunities among a diverse community of educators. Participants will collaborate using a design studio approach which starts by curating and defining a collection of blended learning design challenges, and then leverages the community’s expertise, ideas, and creativity to develop innovative solutions to these challenges. The asynchronous experience begins by curating a community list of real-world challenges associated with designing and implementing blended learning strategies. Next, these challenges serve as the catalyst for developing collaborative and practical solutions using design canvas tools. 

This asynchronous session is available only to participants registered for the Blended Learning Symposium
