Welcome to this new course offering.

During this asynchronous online, facilitated course, educators will explore the pedagogy in teaching from works of art, learn key online and blended instructional design strategies, and master how to use a collection of online tools that support collaboration and curation. The course readings and activities bring the concepts of blended and online instruction to a high level, encouraging deep reflection and conversation about creating successful learning communities, promoting student collaboration, and enhancing instructive techniques. Educators work both individually and collaboratively throughout the course.
