July 2019: Blended Learning Across Platforms

Students in Adult classrooms come with a variety of needs and educational backgrounds, particularly in relation to technology. As we look to increase students’ digital literacy, incorporating blended learning can be an expedient way to increase student confidence in using technology, make content available after hours, and streamline some instructional duties. This session will explore the use of blended learning in the adult education context by way of Learning Management Systems, such as Canvas, Blackboard, and Moodle. Learn about ways blended learning can work in your context, from automating quizzes to student-created digital content.

This month's speaker: Kimberly L. Guppy,
LA City College

We look forward to seeing you in the webinar!
