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.

Academic Technology’s Faculty Engagement service is accepting applications for the new Blended Learning Fellowship on Active Learning Classrooms for spring semester 2018. The promotion of pervasive active learning and the creation of active learning classrooms on campus have created a need for faculty and instuctional staff to develop new skills to use these learning spaces effectively. Participants of this program will recommend training and support options for campus instructors using these active learning classrooms, and will receive a $500 stipend for their time. Successful candidates should already have experience using active learning classrooms. In addition to the weekly sessions, participants may be asked to spend additional time reading articles and/or gathering feedback from others on campus.
