“I love the idea of interacting with these 21st century students using tools they find exciting and engaging.”
– Reflection by a past participant
Christian Schools International believes in the benefits of using technology in the classroom. Member schools desire teachers and administrators who can create quality online course materials. We are thrilled to offer Building a Blended Course to member schools at a discounted rate for a second year. This year’s course has been updated and now includes two curriculum tracks, one for teachers and another specifically for administrators!
This eight-week course will take participants from what they know about excellent teaching and extend that knowledge into building a quality blended course. Participants will be instructed in blended learning definitions and models; will be shown examples of quality blended courses/materials; will be given evaluation structures for examining blended learning tools and materials; will learn how to manage a blended course and learning materials; and will learn how to personalize a blended course, including the incorporation of Christian worldview.
This online course will give you the tools and materials you need to take your top-notch curriculum into the digital age. Collaboration with other educators is encouraged in this class.
Essential questions covered in the course:
- What is blended learning?
- What is the value of blended learning?
- Where can you find quality materials for a blended course?
