Implementing Blended Learning: The Myth vs. the RealityThe landscape of blended learning is quickly growing and ever-changing. There’s a lot of information out there, but how much of it is true? How does a school or a teacher make the switch from traditional teaching to blended learning? What does success look like? Our presentation will discuss what is true about blended learning, dispel the myths, and walk attendees through how to successfully make the change.

First, we’ll take a look at the blended learning landscape and address misinformation. Next, we’ll discuss the most popular blended learning models, and then provide examples of successful implementations. Finally, Dana Spurlin, Instructional Technology Director at Tift County Schools in Georgia, will discuss her first-hand experience in the practical application of blended learning and offer tips and suggestions for those just starting out.

[CNIE-L] Invitation to CIDER session ­- 16 September 2015 | Invitation à un atelier de « CIDER » – le 16 septembre 2015

From Thursday’s inbox…

Dear CNIE Member,

We invite you to the first CIDER session of the 2015-16 season. This free, online session will feature Dr. Rory McGreal, UNESCO/Commonwealth of Learning/ICDE Chair in OER.

Title: Why Open Educational Resources?

Open Educational Resources (OER) are important for the expansion of online learning. Open licensing of learning components is a precondition for supporting anytime, anywhere learning, whether the lessons are arranged as text, multimedia, videos, applications, games or in other electronic formats. The obstacles presented by proprietary materials impede ubiquitous sharing of knowledge with the use of technological protection measures such as DRM (digital rights management), prohibitive licensing, and restrictions on format shifting, localization, content sharing and other activities considered essential for learning.

Dr. McGreal is the UNESCO/Commonwealth of Learning/ICDE Chair in OER, Director of a technical education institute (TEKRI), and professor at Athabasca University. He is also co-Editor of IRRODL (International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning).

When: Wednesday, September 16, 201511am to 12noon Mountain Time (Canada)

Where: Online through Adobe Connect at:
