session of The Alvo Institue's Blended Learning Practitioners’ Circle 101: Overview of Blended Learning from Theory to Practice. Join us for an eight-week exploration of blended learning with a focus on moving from theory to action. Whether you are new to blended or refining your current blended model, this exciting collaborative will help you deepen your practice, expertise and vision. Alvo’s Practitioners’ Circle brings together researchers and educators from across the country to form a virtual innovators’ roundtable. We are fortunate to be joined by the blended practitioners from around the country who will share their experience from the field.
Throughout the course, beginning on July 13, 2015, practitioners will have opportunities to learn, try things in their classrooms or schools, reflect, refine and share, each week. Participants will have an opportunity to discuss current research, explore Alvo’s educator-designed resources, test classroom-based examples of blended practices, share their experiences and learn from the nation’s earliest and most successful blended learning pioneers.
Participants will have access to course content starting July 6, however the course does not officially start until July 13, 2015. Required readings and scheduled webinars are planned. Webinar dates and times will be announced closer to the start of the class. All webinars will be recorded if participants cannot attend the live event.
