We invite you attend the Blended Learning Initiatives Year-End Celebration to showcase and celebrate the important work being done in the 2016-2017 blended learning initiatives sponsored by DoIT Academic Technology, Education Innovation and L&S Learning Support Services.
This year, we are proud to celebrate the accomplishments of the 74 participants of Blend@UW Summer 2016 and Winter 2017, as well as the 11 participants of the Blended Learning Fellowship Program 2016-2017. Themes to be presented at the event include: blended course design experiences, learning spaces, student-centered course evaluations, course approval/contact hour issues, and active learning approaches.
WELCOME TO THE BLENDED LEARNING TOOLKIT
The Oxford dictionary defines the word toolkit as “a personal set of resources, abilities, or skills.” The Blended Learning Toolkit – created by the Blended Learning Fellowship Program – helps instructors new to blended learning develop the necessary skills by providing information about blended learning; highlighting examples and stories of those who are currently integrating blended learning practices into their instruction; providing tutorials and resources for getting started; and building community around blended learning at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
