ASIS&T Presents ...  

Designing a Blended/Hybrid Learning Course
Original Broadcast Date:  May 17, 2012

In the Introduction to Blended/Hybrid webinar participants learned that a blended or hybrid course must be completely redesigned to take advantage of the different mediums and present a meaningful learning experience for the students. This webinar will address popular models of designing a blended course including backwards design and the Communities of Inquiry model.

Participants will learn the steps to consider when blending a course and review examples of blended course maps. Participants will also have access to an overall design template and a module template to complete on their own.
