  • Seminarium

We have discussed distance teaching and blended learning in earlier literature seminars, and in in this literature seminar we go back to that teaching concept again.

We will read chapter 1 and 2 in ”Guide to Blended Learning” by Martha Cleveland-Innes. The book is available on http://oasis.col.org/handle/11599/3095.

The book is designed to assist teachers to adopt blended learning strategies, and the chapters we focus on here discusses theories that support blended learning. The idea with blended learning is to provide instruction and learning through some combination of both face-to-face and technology-mediated learning. Blended learning is therefore linked to the distance teaching practice during Corona, but also the post-Corona teaching practice, i.e. what we can (and should) bring with us when we are back to normality.
We will in this literature seminar discuss different theoretical frameworks/models and how they can support and be used in your teaching practice.

Welcome!
