Are you scheduled to teach a blended or hybrid course? Or a course in which you deliver your content entirely online and use the face-to-face meetings for activities? Or are you teaching an online course with synchronous online sessions through Zoom? If so, this workshop series is for you! Teaching Blended, Flipped, and Synchronous Courses is part of the Online and Blended Teaching Program (OBTP). It is a two-day workshop series that focuses on helping instructors plan their courses for the blended, flipped, and synchronous formats using pedagogically effective methods and practices.

Please note that if you need technical training on how to use Canvas or Zoom, check out CETL’s Canvas Workshop Series. Teaching Blended, Flipped, and Synchronous Courses does not provide training on technology tools.

During both face-to-face sessions, program facilitators will lead discussions and activities focused on key pedagogical considerations for these modes of instruction. Topics discussed over the course of the program include:

  • Overview of Blended, Flipped, and Synchronous Learning
  • Developing a Blended Course Schedule
  • Selecting Online and Face-to-Face Activities
  • Integrating Online and Face-to-Face Activities
  • Facilitating Discussions in Synchronous Sessions
  • Supporting Students in Synchronous Sessions

Participants should plan to attend two face-to-face meetings on the following dates:

  • Friday, October 22, 10-11:15 am
  • Friday, October 29, 10-11:15 am

Participants should also plan to engage in online activities between the face-to-face sessions. These activities will require 2-3 hours per week and include reading content, exploring resources, taking a quiz, and posting to an online discussion forum.

By registering for this event, you are registering for both dates, even though the e-mail confirmation will only have the first date (due to registration system limitations).

Our program is activity-based, so please bring a laptop or tablet to all sessions, if possible. For more information, or to request special accommodations, please contact Dylan Barth.
