Engaging Parents to Support Blended Learning
Parental support for their students in your blended environment is critical, particularly for any portions of the learning experience that are remote from campus. This micro-course will help you engage parents in the learning process and establish collaborative parent-teacher and parent-student relationships.
- Analyzing your current practice and examples from other educators
- Developing parent norms and matching student benefits to the modalities of a blended learning arc
- Preparing and delivering communications to inform parents and secure their commitment to support their learner in a blended environment
- Reflecting on your learning and opportunities for improvement in the future
- Planning at least one way to share your learning with colleagues
- Create accessible systems for two-way communication with parents.
- Develop parent commitment to giving balanced support to their students during any remote portion of blended learning.
