Blended Learning Exploration

Blended or hybrid instruction allows students to learn in two different environments. Whether those are remote or in-person environments, this webinar will explore decision-making strategies for blended learning. For example, how do you decide what to move online and what to deliver synchronously or f2f? Also, we will examine blended course design and offer strategies for aligned instruction between the two different modalities.

Applying the Quality Matters Rubric (APPQMR) Workshop

This is a two-week asynchronous workshop (online) that requires at least 10 hours of participation per week. It is the same content as the f2f APPQMR that you may have already taken, however, the online format does offer more perks, such as assignments, opportunities for deep learning, and interaction with all participants.  This is one way to learn more about online course design. Please request registration information from your chair. 
A list of faculty who have completed the APPQMR workshop in the past is located here.
