Do you teach adults?
Join Meagen Farrell for a unique, facilitated training experience. Learn to blend classroom instruction with self-paced, computer-based learning. During this course, adult educators will gain experiences and tools to blend student use of technology with classroom instruction.
Bring your big ideas, problem-solving lenses, and a readiness to try new things!
Meagen is the author of the recently published online course "Blended Learning in Adult Education" by Essential Education, and previously National Teacher Trainer for GED Academy. A native of Northeast Ohio, she is thrilled to return to the Virginia Department of Corrections Summer Institute in June 2017 to present this course live.
Live participants will also have access to Essential Education's Blended Learning PD course and GED Academy. You can also purchase them, or combine this course with the computer-based teaching products of your choice. This course is a chance for you to try new things, and share with other educators.
And you don't need to be in Virginia to access this training! Follow along from the comfort of your own home.
Once you sign up, you will have access to the first section of the course...which includes homework! Over the course of four days, you will receive an email each day prompting you to complete the next section. Log in to participate in online discussions for a chance to share with adult educators in Virginia and around the world.
