The Art and Science of Blended Learning: Preparing for the 2020–21 School Year

Date(s): 8/10/2020 — 8/23/2020 Status: Wait-listed

An interactive course for private school teachers of all levels

Virtual Course Dates: Monday, August 10–Sunday, August 23

Private-independent school teachers worked hard to pivot to distance learning this spring. Now we must consider the 2020-2021 school year.

Teachers must prepare to teach some of their classes at a distance, while also having a plan for teaching in their physical classrooms. This course will prepare teachers to redesign their classes with evidence-based practices that build student engagement and support in-depth learning—by experiencing such a class themselves. 

How This Course Works

This course comprises interactive modules (videos, slideshows, and other types of presentations) and online video and text discussions and forums.

Mike Gwaltney, ISM Consultant and Director of Online Learning, and Barbara Beachley, ISM Consultant and Director of Organizational Learning and Development, will act as tutors, coaches, and mentors along the way. They will check in with each learner as he or she progresses through the course.

Mike and Barbara will pace the course to give everyone the same tasks at the same time. Participants have the freedom to complete their individual work when their schedule allows, while having access to a cohort of fellow learners to ask questions and discuss the tasks. 

Teachers can expect to spend about 45 minutes to one hour per weekday (about 3-5 hours per week) working on the course. The actual amount will depend on each participant's engagement level in discussion boards, the complexity of the project(s) they take on, and the time they can commit.
