Blended Learning format courses support educators' teaching and learning while meeting the demanding schedules of today's teachers. This course format combines face-to-face class meetings with a collaborative online component, using Blackboard, in which the course instructor delivers the course content and serves as an instructional coach. Course participants engage in responsive learning connected to key concepts of the course. Following an action research model, participants determine a concept they would like to explore more fully and create a plan to implement in their classroom and/or school setting.
When registering, please note the location of the course. Learners are required to travel to the site for the face-to-face class sessions, while the online sessions are completed via Blackboard on a computer in a location convenient for you.
If you are not in a degree program at Saint Mary's University, your log in information will be shared with you via the instructor or the GPDE Program Office, shortly before the course starts.
