Engage Your Students with Blended Learning Activities

Intermediate Computer Proficiency required. Read more »

Intermediate computer proficiency courses are designed for individuals who already have good understanding of technology. Participants will build upon their skills by learning how to use a variety of resources, including learning apps, Microsoft 365 apps, and photo and video editing platforms.

In the current educational landscape, traditional classrooms are no longer the exclusive venues for purposeful and engaging learning.

Nowadays, learning occurs in diverse settings, encompassing physically distanced classrooms, online learning spaces, hybrid environments accommodating both on-site and remote students, learning videos, and the flipped education model.

This shift underscores the evolving nature of education, transcending the confines of conventional classroom instruction and textbooks.

How much do you feel at ease in teaching in these new settings?

This course will provide effective training on how to create engaging activities for students in all of these learning contexts. By its end, you will know how to create personalized, engaging activities to boost your students’ participation, reflection, and collaboration, no matter where their learning happens.

As a participant, you will learn to efficiently use digital technologies to promote student agency and participation in both face-to-face and remote learning (e.g., by creating simple games to increase student motivation). Together, we will discuss how to encourage students to be autonomous and become creators of new content.

You will also acquire a practical understanding of how to provide students with a choice so that they can set their own goals, and take responsibility for all the relevant segments of their learning.

Finally, participants will analyze effective techniques for making assessment an integral part of learning, and explore new strategies to let students demonstrate a deeper level of understanding.

By the end of the course, you will be confident in designing educational activities and materials for teaching in any learning environment. You will know how to adapt to unpredictable and unexpected situations, and how to always make learning an engaging and meaningful experience.
