Designing a Weekly Blended Learning Arc
In this micro-course, teachers will develop a weekly learning schedule that blends face-to-face and remote teaching modalities. As part of this schedule, they will design a weekly blended learning arc that requires them to plan for whole group launch and closing sessions and to structure individual student learning sprints, collaborative projects/games, and 1:1 student check-ins.
- Create a weekly blended learning arc for one course or subject.
- Plan for the delivery of an independent work sprint instructional model (i.e., teacher-directed, software directed, or hybrid) for use in independent work delivered by an online platform.
- Prepare and post a collaborative project or game aligned to the selected learning objective.
- Plan group discussions to launch and close the learning arc.
