CPD Workshop: Blended Learning Design

In this workshop on Blended Learning Design, you will receive an introduction into the entire process of designing education that optimizes the use of face-to-face and online learning.

First, we will discuss the definition. What is blended learning? What misconceptions surround this concept? Next to that, we elaborate on design principles that guide the process: constructive alignment and the CCCS principles (learning as a constructive, contextual, collaborative, and self-directed process) as foundation of PBL.

Following the introductory interactive keynote, you will dive deeper into the subject of blended learning design. In this session, we address the how of blended learning. How can we design an activating student-oriented learning journey that incorporate and translate these guiding principles for educational design? During the workshop, we will show examples and you will collaborate in creating your own blended learning student-journey. There is plenty room for questions and discussion.

We aim for an interactive session. So, be sure to bring a mobile device that allows for web-browsing. If the session will be hosted online, you will need a computer web-browser. We will use a tool to visually create the student learning journey.

PLEASE NOTE that this workshop is planned to take place via zoom and you will receive a link in an outlook invitation prior to the event.  However, if the home-working restrictions are relaxed, we will explore the possibility of moving this session to EDLAB and running it in person.


Please bring one Intended Learning Outcome to the workshop. This can be an ILO from one of your one courses (if you are a course coordinator) or from another existing course within your programme.
