The goal of this focus session is to revisit the potential of blended learning instructional models, student learning outcomes, and successful implementation practices. The maturing of online learning practices and engagements has opened new possibilities for curriculum design, including both face-to-face and online learning opportunities. The ability to design a course that uniquely blends face-to-face and distributed interaction allows institutions to address learners' specific needs and customize the learning environment rather than rely on a "one size fits all" approach.
This 2010 Educause Online Fall Focus Session will be hosted inside an Adobe Connect learning environment and facilitated locally. This virtual event will be much more than a typical online seminar. You will exchange ideas and collaborate interactively with the Educause community—all without leaving UNO. Local resources and guided activities are planned in order to frame discussions here on campus.
Free local registration and lunch are provided. Please come and go as necessary for your schedule. If you plan to attend during the lunch hour (12 - 1pm) on one or both days, please RSVP by registering through the Calendar so that we can confirm lunch orders with food service.
