I’m leading a webinar today for the Associated Colleges of the South (ACS) on Course Design for Blended Learning. The ACS currently offers grants to fund blended learning projects in their consortium of liberal arts colleges. Here’s the description of the webinar:
Blended learning offers many opportunities for liberal arts colleges to enhance the curriculum, but how can faculty maintain the essential values of liberal education in an educational context combining online and face-to-face interaction? This seminar will examine successful methods and processes for blended learning course design. Examples will include designing online courses from liberal arts values, flipping the classroom, and academic collaboration between campuses. Interactive exercises for course design will help participants leave with a process and next steps for developing blended learning experiences in their own courses. The slides are available here:
Previous presentations on this topic included an Inside Higher Ed Audio Conference in March 2011 and a webinar for the Associated Colleges of the South in March 2012.
