Making a Success of Blended Learning

Thursday 25th June 2020

#UKEdChat session 509 – Blended learning means many different things to many different people. From bolting on a bit of technology, to not being a separate entity to what should be the norm in 21st century teaching. But at its basic level it is a complimenting of the face-to-face and distance learning which enhances MANY teaching methods, usually with a focus on technology tying everything together, and taking the maximum advantage offered by each setting, interaction and resource available.

During the Coronavirus pandemic, most teachers have embraced some level of blended learning by synergising (<apologies🤢) the best of analogue and digital. But will this trend continue when face-to-face teaching resumes en masse? Indeed, does simply doing what you did face-to-face now online represents an improvement, or should methods adapt to make the best use of, and even the opportunities of teaching through digital media?

In the #UKEdChat discussion on Thursday 25th June 2020 at 8pm (UK), and during our free UKEdChat After Hours Webinar at 9pm we discussed what blended learning means to you, what are the barriers and how to overcome them, and what are your favourite activities and resources.
