Blended learning offers a variety of benefits for the high school classroom, especially when implementing the BC Education Plan and redesigned curriculum. In this session, participants will learn to implement blended learning environments in their teaching practice and be introduced to specific strategies and techniques that engage learners through blended learning. You will find that students are able to take more ownership and responsibility/accountability in their learning, and teachers can meet individual learners needs more effectively, when they are engaged in personalized blended learning courses. Through activities, collaboration, and sharing out, participants will be able to start down the path of blending their practice to harness the benefits of both online and face-to-face teaching and learning. The power of blending will become evident as a 'best of both worlds' approach to your professional practice.
