Workshop led by Vikki Abusidualghoul
During this workshop, we will explore five aspects of blended learning: interaction, engagement, group work, content selection and materials design. This is a practical and participative workshop full of examples and with lots of opportunities to discuss our experiences and share our ideas about synchronous and asynchronous face-to-face and online learning and their juxtapositions. The workshop is aimed at the broad audience of colleagues from those who are early in their teaching careers looking for answers and ideas, all the way to those with many years of classroom practice who are looking for consolidation and reinvigoration.
Date: Wednesday 22nd May 2019
Time: 13:00 - 16:00
