Liberal Arts Online: An ACS Blended Learning Webinar

March 9, 2012 § 1 Comment

On March 9, 2012, I led a webinar for the Associated  Colleges of the South‘s (ACS) Blended Learning Initiative.  I include the description and slides below:

Improving technology, changing students, challenging finances, and alternative credentialing sources have all combined to create an online learning boom in higher education. For liberal arts colleges, online learning promises to enhance the curriculum by moving some tasks online to allow for more active learning face-to-face, increasing student time on task, connecting study abroad or internship students back to campus, adding curricular resources, or expanding access to liberal education. Whatever the motivation for considering online learning, liberal arts colleges are forging new ground in bringing the liberal arts educational model–highly interactive, close work between students and faculty–into an online context. This seminar will explore a variety of models for using technology to fulfill the essential learning outcomes of liberal education and suggest ways faculty might enhance their courses with online teaching.
