Blended Synchronous Learning Workshops

The Blended Synchronous Learning Workshops ran from October 2013 to August 2014 in order to:

  • Present the findings from seven case studies of blended synchronous learning conducted across Australia
  • Provide an overview of how tools such as web-conferencing and virtual worlds can be used to unite remote and face-to-face students in the same live learning experience
  • Promote active discussion of the issues (pedagogical, technological, institutional) relating to blended synchronous learning
  • Provide participants with hands on experience of blended synchronous learning so that they can develop an experiential understanding of the potentials and limitations of the approaches.

Details of each workshop along with links to the recordings of the sessions are provided below. A copy of the workshop presentation slides can be downloaded from here.
