Faculty Workshop on Blended Learning

Would you like to have better discussions, greater participation, and more interaction in your courses? Would you prefer to have more flexibility in scheduling class sessions, responding to student work, holding office hours, and the like? If so, you ought to consider “blending” your courses. More and more courses at RIT and other institutions are being offered in a blended-learning format. As the name suggests, the goal of blended learning is to combine the best features of classroom instruction with the best features of online communication to promote active independent learning. Using computer-based technologies—primarily myCourses—you can use the blended model to transform some of your lecture or lab content into new online learning activities, such as online discussions, virtual teams, case studies, tutorials, simulations, and self-testing exercises. To learn how to blend your courses, we invite you to attend this 90-minute workshop. The workshop’s facilitators are drawn from the faculty and staff of the Blended Learning Pilot, a project that has designed, taught, and assessed more than 60 blended courses from across RIT. The facilitators will share what they have learned about developing exciting and effective blended courses in any discipline. This workshop will include a brief overview of the RIT Blended Pilo Project, small-group work sessions, and recommendations for instructional techniques, online tools, and logistical strategies that can be applied directly to your courses. A continental breakfast will be served. All RIT faculty members—both full-time and adjunct—are invited to attend this workshop. To register, please visit http://www.online.rit.edu/faculty/events/ and submit the registration form. For additional information about the workshop, please contact Michael Starenko at 5-5035 or at mssetc@rit.edu
