What is this course about?

 

Vance Stevens, English Language Specialist, and RELO Bangkok, invite you to join in a FREE 3-week online seminar on Learning How to Create and Use a Blended Learning Classroom, The course takes place in Schoology and officially opened on Thu Feb 20, 2020, 19:00 in Bangkok (12 noon UTC). Enrollment had been open from Feb 17 onwards.

 

Several more synchronous webinars and office hours will be scheduled, at times negotiable with participants, but attendance at the webinars is optional. What is more important is asynchronous participation in the Schoology discussions. But there are no certificates offered for the course, and participants are welcome to drop in and participate in whatever capacity they feel will benefit them at any time over the next three weeks.

 

The idea for the course is to practice community-as-curriculum along MOOC precepts and take advantage of this opportunity to work in consulation with an EL Specialist who developed the course following two decades experience in cultivating blended and online learning in f2f classrooms and in distributed communities of practice -- and perhaps more importantly, to network with and learn from peers.

 

Throughout the course, the specialist will model methods for creating blending learning environments which, if they resonate with you, you can apply in your own teaching context.

What to review

 

The course will follow roughly on the materials covered in the workshops offered by EL Specialist Vance Stevens from Jan 20-Jan 29 in Thailand.

You can review these materials here: FrontPage

 

However, it is anticipated that the workshops might attract participants who attended these workshop as well as some who did not.

Therefore the workshop will be patterned on the needs and aspirations of those who attend it.

 

No prior knowledge is assumed. The EL Specialist can work with anyone who wishes to pursue the course ourline as follows:
