Essentials of online instruction for a blended world

The skills built over the duration of a teaching career are impressive and vast. And as the field of education moves forward, deepening expertise in remote learning will continue to be top of mind. With ‘Essentials of online instruction for a blended world’, individuals and teams gain research-based teaching strategies applicable to virtual and blended learning that will move students toward success today and in the years to come.

Why educators choose this course

Grounded in research

Designed specifically for secondary educators, the course is built on the Effective Practice Framework© from the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) and Dr Robert J Marzano’s New Art and Science of Teaching framework. These evidence-based frameworks are backed by more than five decades of research and they work together to prepare educators to provide student-centred virtual instruction.

Effective teaching in action

This course is thoughtfully designed to model effective remote-teaching practices in action. First, participants learn a specific set of strategies. Next, they are prompted to practise implementing the strategies in their own remote classrooms. Finally, they carefully review and reflect on the learning experience. When it comes to developing a new skill, this unique cycle of learning, practising and reflecting is unmatched.

Trusted expert guidance

Taught by fourteen internationally recognised experts, the course offers deep and meaningful insight from thought leaders who are living this work. Count on them to offer unique points of view and openly share what’s worked for them and why. With their guidance, educators acquire brand new remote-teaching strategies along with practical ways to refine practices already in their toolkits.
