Blended Learning in Our Library Learning Landscape Workshop
An online workshop from the American Library Association is: Blend It 2018: Blended Learning in Our Library Learning Landscape Workshop, on 18 January 2018 2.30-4pm US Eastern time, which means e.g. it starts at 7.30pm UK time. It is led by Paul Signorelli. Costs are: US $65.00; ALA Member: $ 58.50. "The places where we train, teach, and learn are continuing to expand in dynamic, rewarding ways. Learning that once took place entirely within the physical spaces of our buildings, with clearly-established starting and ending times, now flows through our walls and turns our classrooms into potentially global workspaces at the drop of a tweet or the posting of an observation on a Facebook page. The communication is multi-directional as prospective participants join us informally on Twitter and other social media platforms and formally through live, well-facilitated tweet chats, Google Hangouts, and other synchronous and asynchronous learning tools. Join us for a highly-interactive exploration of how our blended (onsite-online) learning spaces offer continually expanding opportunities to better engage and serve our learners. This session will include a few case studies and plenty of time for participants to share their own efforts to create and facilitate the use of blended learning spaces."
