Flexible Learning Series

Designing a Blended Learning Experience

Blended learning combines face-to-face and online learning to provide instructors and students with new forms of flexibility—such as freeing up class time for more interactive elements.

In this workshop—which includes online and in-person components—you will experience a blended learning environment first-hand as you move through the fundamentals of how to blend your own course.

Facilitating Collaboration and Communication Online

Online communication channels, such as Blackboard Collaborate Ultra, offer many ways to enhance learning in both face-to-face and online courses; for example, by allowing guest speakers to deliver virtual lectures or by enabling students to participate in group work from a distance. 

In this completely online workshop, you will learn about the many features available in Blackboard Collaborate Ultra and explore how they can be applied in learning environments.

Designing Games for Learning

Adding simple, content-based games to your course can not only make the learning process more fun for your students, but also support content recall. In this workshop, you will design a game to suit your learning objectives by prototyping existing board and action games such as Snakes and Ladders, Hangman and Scrabble.

This blended workshop begins with a self-paced online session, followed by two face-to-face sessions.
