How do we improve student learning? How do we support our students and provide them access to a quality education? How do we develop new opportunities and overcome our limited resources?
Institutions of higher education around the world are using blended learning to enhance student learning, facilitate student access, meet instructional and institutional goals, and find solutions for diminishing resources. Faculty members and instructional designers use the blended mode to enrich teaching and learning. Administrators strategically incorporate blended programs in order to help fulfill their institutions' missions and goals. Students draw on blended offerings to take advantage of the flexibility and to improve their time to degree.
Join your colleagues at the 9th Annual Sloan Consortium Blended Learning Conference and Workshop, Perfecting the Blend, as we problem-solve, exchange ideas, and explore effective strategies about blended learning. The conference provides the opportunity for instructors and faculty members, instructional designers, student advisors, administrative leaders, and researchers to share best practices, strategic considerations, models of practice, and challenges revealed through our experiences in practice and research.
Attendees will be able to attend two days of sessions including interactive workshops, information sessions, poster sessions, a plenary session, and a keynote address, all focused on instructional practices, academic planning, faculty development, and assessment/evaluation.
