Blended Learning Course 

 In order to be a good online instructor, teachers need to first experience online learning as a student. Participants will participate in a vibrant community of online learners using various online learning tools such as discussion boards, online video, webinars and electronic peer review workshops to learn about best practices for teaching online. Participants will also receive assistance creating their own blended learning course using the learning management system of choice. The purpose of the course is to expand what you already do face-to-face to include online learning spaces for your students.
