About Blended Learning 

Bridging the gap between strategy and delivery, this practical programme presents best practice in blended learning – building the skills that enable the successful integration of face-to-face and online teaching. The programme aims to empower lecturers to translate principles and aims into effective teaching and learning practices, which, in turn, will lead to corresponding improvements in student performance, engagement, satisfaction, and retention. The programme explores all aspects of the blended learning approach, from teaching strategies and course design to assessment and evaluation – clarifying the opportunities available, whilst also analysing the benefits and challenges of this format, and how to build a culture that sustains and embeds blended learning throughout an institution.

This programme is for:

Lecturers and faculty considering a blended learning approach in their teaching and those looking to improve their skills and understanding of combining face-to-face with online teaching and assessment.

Webinar on impact of Open Education – Findings from the OER Research Hub, 30 September 2015, 12.30 – 13.15 BST

Presentation by Martin Weller, Professor of Educational Technology, Institute of Educational Technology Open University. Introduced by Ella Mitchell and Sarah Bridgman.

The OER Research Hub has been investigating the impact of OERs, using eleven hypotheses, and a mixed methods approach to establish an evidence base. This talk explores the findings relating to teaching and learning. The findings reveal a set of direct impacts, including an increase in factors relating to student performance, increased reflection on the part of educators, and the use of OER to trial and supplement formal study. There are also indirect impacts, whose benefits will be seen after several iterations. These include the wide scale reporting of adaptation, and the increase in sharing and open practice that results from OER usage.

This webinar is being run via Blackboard Collaborate. The link to the session is: https://sas.elluminate.com/m.jnlp?sid=7565&password=M.013F40B58C3B85B8D5…
