In this LEARN short course, participants will be guided through the development of a blended course using a learner-centered backwards design approach. Participants will complete a series of online modules designed to help instructors prepare a blended course. The course emphasizes integrating modalities, managing workload, and ensuring there is a clearly laid out pathway for students through the course. A workbook is provided to help capture work and provide direction as participants move through the design and development process. 


You can self-enroll in this LEARN course. The course is available by clicking on  “Self-Registration” on the top navigation bar of your LEARN homepage.
