Blending Technology and Improving Instruction (6 day Summer Course)

Description: Participants will be able to independently use their learning to design and deliver high-quality courses/units in a blended learning environment. We will learn to use "Understanding by Design" (UbD), which is a framework for improving student achievement.

UbD uses a backward design approach by focusing first on identifying desired outcomes, then determining appropriate assessments, and lastly, planning relevant, effective and engaging learning experiences both in the classroom and online. Participants will use Moodle and other collaborative technology tools in conjunction with UbD to create a blended learning experience.
