Faculty Learning Communities
Blended Learning Course Redesign
The Faculty Professional Development Program and the e-Learning Center are co-sponsoring a Faculty Learning Community on blended learning course redesign. It will be facilitated by Drs. Astrid Klocke of Comparative Cultural Studies and John Doherty of the e-Learning Center.
Two orientation sessions are planned for early December. The purpose of the orientation session is to introduce attendees to the nature, format, and resources that will be a part of the learning community. It will provide the opportunity to make a decision about spring semester engagement with colleagues in this learning community. We encourage you to attend one of the orientation sessions to gain the information useful for you in making a decision about your participation:
Monday December 3rd, 2012 at 12 Noon at the Faculty Professional Development Program's Teaching Commons (Room 169 in Cline Library).
Wednesday December 5th, 2012 at 2:00pm at the Faculty Professional Development Program's Teaching Commons (Room 169 in Cline Library).
This faculty learning community offers you the chance to meet regularly throughout Spring 2013 with a small, cross-disciplinary group (10-12 participants) to look at blended learning in an in-depth, ongoing, scholarly, and systematic way. The group will explore the research and experience of blended learning to design and implement their blended learning projects. For more, Miami University offers a good overview of faculty learning communities: http://www.units.muohio.edu/celt/faculty/flcs/.
This community may also include participants from the faculty from the President's Technology Initiative and from the previously funded group who are currently piloting blended courses.
This Learning Community is being initiated as a collaboration between the Faculty Professional Development Program and the eLearning Center. If you are interested in hearing more about this faculty learning community, please join us for an orientation session. RSVP here.
