Overview

When designing your blended learning module you might decide to develop, or provide, some content for your students to work through themselves online ahead of class, or indeed additional resources that they would find valuable as they study and prepare for exams.  With this in mind, the purpose of this workshop is to explore three key areas of relevance:

  • how to source open (i.e. free) educational resources and how to evaluate them for use.
  • the wide range of content development tools that are available for you, both free and licenced based.
  • how to ‘integrate’ rather than ‘use’ technologies within the curriculum, ensuring that any technologies integrated are planned to support curricular objectives; to engage your students with content; and to facilitate activities that might otherwise be impossible.

This workshop is part of the 2016 Master Blender Series - attend just this workshop, or attend four in total to earn your Master Blender badge.
