Time and space are at a premium on college campuses these days. Blended learning courses allow institutions, and students, to make better use of both. By combining the best of face-to-face instruction with online learning technology, blended approaches can reduce time on campus while contributing to better learning outcomes. There are three times when students should be learning. Before class. During class. And after class. Traditional face-to-face courses focus mainly on what happens during class. That leaves a lot of time underutilized. Dr. Shibley will inspire professors to think about how to use blended courses to more actively involve students with the course material. This seminar will cover:

  • Preparing class guides that help students learn prior to class
  • Using student response systems to create a more active classroom
  • Writing quiz questions to increase rehearsal and involvement with course material
  • Ways to reach higher levels of Blooms taxonomy with clicker questions
  • Teaching challenges for before, during, and after class
  • How blended learning makes assessment easier

You’ll also get the opportunity to create your own class guides for blended learning, and write potential clicker and quiz questions.
