In this introductory session we will outline key considerations for blending a course. Discussions topics will include using backward design to plan blended learning, considering the strengths and limitations of various teaching and learning modalities while keeping learning objectives in mind, the shifting roles of a student-centered learning environment, tips for integrating assessment technologies to iterate on approaches, and technologies to get started. Columbia faculty and graduate students from all departments are welcome and encouraged to attend. Lunch will be available to those that register.
This event is part of the RewirED workshop series. RewirED is a series of seminars for Columbia faculty and graduate student instructors that explores blended learning approaches and techniques, features hands-on activities, and culminates in a showcase of faculty projects.
