Training module 'Designing Active, Blended Learning'

For LDE-Center for Education and Learning (LDE-CEL), Risbo has developed a training module for teachers, focused on designing active, blended learning. Blended learning is a combination of 'traditional' teaching sessions and online learning. Participants design a prototype of a blended teaching session (new or existing) with activating elements. The objective is that the participants can make their own teaching more effective, by considering which teaching activities can occur during the times of contact, and which can occur outside the classroom.

Target group and required prior knowledge
This module is accessible to teachers who want to gain more insight into active, blended teaching, and who want to apply new knowledge and skills in their own teaching practice. No specific prior knowledge is required.

On conclusion of the 'Designing Active, Blended Learning' training module the participants will be able to:
  • Design an active, blended learning session, appropriate to the subject's configuration and objectives;
  • Develop the associated activities and tools;
  • Create a concrete plan based on the acquired knowledge and experience, with regard to structurally embedding active, blended learning in their own teaching practice.

Content and form
The module's configuration is as follows:

Teachers will invest between 24 and 32 hours of their time. The total contact time depends on the number of participants, but will be around 12 hours. Individual preparation in advance and in the interim will be around 12 to 20 hours.
The module will be supported by an online learning environment which offers an overview of the workshop's structure. This is where participants will find the assignments and inspirational material. There is also a discussion forum where the participants can discuss topics outside the contact moments.

Evaluation and certification
On conclusion of the module, including performing the assignments, the participants will receive a certificate of participation.
