BlendKit2017: Design – DIY Tasks
This badge recognizes faculty preparation for effective blended course design, development, and teaching through successful completion of the BlendKit2017 online course. The goal of the BlendKit Course is to provide assistance via a consideration of key issues related to blended learning and practical step-by-step guidance in producing actual materials for a blended course, i.e., from design documents through creating content pages to peer review feedback at your own institution.
The objectives for Week 1 of BlendKit2017 are to: identify the general benefits of blended learning; recognize a range of implementation options possible in developing blended learning courses; and articulate design plans for “blending” one of the courses you teach. Participants earned this badge by submitting two documents: a Course Blueprint, which details the existing design of a course; and a Mix Map, which discusses the various learning activities in their blended learning course.
