2 2 5-Minute University

3 3 Program Overview Format  Hands-on, curriculum (re)design work  Team/individual work  Binder resources   Evaluations Topics  Day 1: Blended learning overview and redesign  Day 2: Course redesign and engagement  Day 3: Assessment, student success and collaboration  Day 4: Academic integrity, copyright, and quality assurance

4 4 Learning Objectives  To understand blended learning  To identify and connect with the blended learning community  To accumulate resources that can be used today and in the future  To learn to use tools to convert into or create a blended course  To design a module and to understand the steps in doing so  To be introduced to the process of integrating technology in a meaningful way that promotes student learning  To understand basic principles in creating a high quality blended learning experience  To understand the implications of teaching in a blended environment

5 5  Facilitators  Participants  Break into pairs  What is your “signature” teaching technique?  Share

9 9 What is blended learning? Online The “Blend” Face-to- Face

10 10 The 10 Blended Questions As a Guide Throughout

11 11 Motivation…  A way to meet Net Gen student expectations  Attractive alternative to Face2Face instruction  A good match for the Net Gen’s visual, exploratory, participative learning preferences  Usually more work to design (at least at the beginning), but improved student engagement and achievement  The best of both worlds

12 12 The Optimal Model Teaching Opportunities  Allows for many diverse solutions to course problems  Enables the incorporation of new types of interactive and independent learning activities  Variety of online and in-class teaching strategies  Learn technologies while you learn your material Student Engagement  Potential to increase and extend instructor-student and student- student connectivity  Discussions started in class may be continued online  Students who rarely take part in class discussions are more likely to participate online  Integration of out-of- and in-class activities allows more effective use of traditional class time

13 13  Learned more  Wrote better papers  Performed better on exams  Produced higher quality projects  Were capable of more meaningful discussions on course material  Were better able to master concepts and apply what they have learned  Developed higher-order skills of critical thinking, problem- solving, and the ability to apply theoretical models to real-world data Source: University of Central Florida Data, 2007

14 14 The Sloan Consortium National data reports

15 15 What can it look like?  The National Center for Academic Transformation   Replacement Model Summaries: _all.htm _all.htm  Syllabi review  Anthropology  Nursing  Spanish  Distance Learning

17 17 Activity: Reviewing Blended Courses Individually  Browse as many blended course syllabi as possible  Review the NCAT redesign course examples  What did you observe to be different in the traditional course from the blended course In your Teams  Identify and agree upon unique features and strategies of blended courses  Report out


19 19 Activity: Mapping Your Course, Part I  Handout: Mapping your Course  Map out your face-2-face course from the syllabus and/or other course documents  Identify the chunks in your course via the topics or learning objectives in your syllabus  Select one chunk to work with during the week
