Teaching Blended Classes

A blended classroom has online students participating alongside face-to-face students. Faculty, departments, programs, and colleges have been planning for fall, a significant number of classes have been looking to this model of teaching. To facilitate blended classrooms, ITS will be adding KanDao livecasting hardware to their AV deliveries. This units can be plugged into your desktop or laptop and function as a room-friendly replacement for your computer's microphone, speaker, and camera. But having hardware that lets you incorporate online students into your face-to-face classroom is only one piece of the puzzle.

This four-day workshop will cover a range of topics and challenges unique to teaching a blended class, including:

  • Managing a blended classroom, including what kinds of activities to choose and managing student issues
  • Testing options for blended rooms, with a focus on the new Respondus Remote Live Proctor tool
  • Positioning and using the KanDao live-casting hardware available for classroom delivery via ITS in the fall

This workshop will consist of 3 hours of asynchronous lessons delivered via Blackboard (course site will open Monday of the week of the live-session), a live online session (using the KanDao hardware), and an individual face-to-face meeting with a designer in the ODE offices where participants will get hands-on practice setting up the live-casting hardware. We'll schedule the individual meeting the week of the class.

If you are planning to teach a blended class this fall, please sign up for this workshop.
