Redesigning Your Course for Blended Learning

Would you like to enhance student learning? Would you like to discover new ways to engage learners online to facilitate active learning in the classroom?

Blended learning combines face-to-face and online methods in an integrated approach to provide an enriched student learning experience.

This three-part workshop series will guide you through a blended course-design process. It will encourage you to work with colleagues to consider how this approach can provide your students with increased opportunities to more deeply explore ideas and concepts within your course.

This workshop series is for faculty and sessional instructors who are currently using BbLearn/OWL for administrative purposes or who are unfamiliar with the BbLearn/OWL environment. Faculty with extensive experience in blended or online learning would also benefit from participating in this workshop.

We will use a combination of face-to-face activities and online resources, along with guest presenters and CLT facilitators to involve participants in exploring ways to design and develop a blended course.

Participants are strongly encouraged to commit to all three sessions and commit to a modest amount of homework between sessions to optimize learning and outcomes.  Registration is required and limited to a maximum of ten participants.

Interested participants who complete all three sessions will be invited for one-on-one consultations with the CLT eLearning Team to support the completion of their course project.

CLT Co--facilitators:

Suzanne LeMay-Sheffield, Interim Director (Programs)
Aaron Panych, Instructional Designer, eLearning Team
Adrienne Sehatzadeh, Instructional Designer, eLearning Team

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to

  • reconceptualize their courses in a blended learning framework
  • utilize course design principles and effective practices in designing a blended course
  • identify a variety of online tools for designing a blended course
  • reflect upon how student and instructor roles change in a blended course
