Preparing for a variety of options when school returns in fall 2020 will allow teachers and students the ability to be flexible and succeed in all environments. Finding that success depends on developing the perfect blend!

This book study will focus on understanding and reflecting on your role as a designer of learning experiences and on creating and using digital content in the classroom. High-quality online learning and community building will be modeled and facilitated throughout the process. Participants will work at their own pace, roughly 3-6 hours per week on average. There will be some synchronous elements with the instructor that will include Q & A opportunities as well as office hours for individual support.

The book, "The Perfect Blend: A Practical Guide to Designing Student-Centered Learning Experiences," will be provided to all participants. Pickup locations will be emailed prior to the start date.
