Planning for a Blended Future: A Research-Driven Guide for Educators
DETA in partnership with Every Learner Everywhere (ELE) and the Online Learning Consortium (OLC) releases a new guide to support educators.
“While many of us through the years have experienced and witnessed the potential of blended (or hybrid) learning in the future of postsecondary education, the promise has never been more realized than in the world’s response to a global pandemic and the urgency for academic continuity through emergency remote instruction that required online learning technologies to mix or replace students’ onsite experience with a new online experience. Educators persevered through a global pandemic, a collective trauma of our lives, learning more than ever the weaknesses of technology, the strengths of togetherness, and the need for thoughtful and inclusive strategic planning. While the challenge, disappointment, and devastation are not without note, the possibilities for the strategic transformation of the future of higher education through blended learning are abundant. By thoughtfully and strategically considering design and technologies to create meaningful connectedness across distance through active learning pedagogies, real learning can be achieved.”
