These webinars are modeled after the effective Tech 'n Tell series developed by our IDEAL partners and colleagues at TCALL at Texas A & M University that provides professional development for the Texas adult education system. We are grateful for their collaborative spirit and sharing of best practices.
This professional development activity/course is designed for:
- Program directors and staff interested in bringing distance or blended learning to their programs
This webinar will cover what distance and blended learning are (and how they differ from technology integration). You will learn ways that programs have incorporated them to increase access and accelerate outcomes for learners in their communities. We will explain the two options ACLS funds, and the supports that are available for programs, staff, and students.
The webinar will be 1.5 hours, with the last half hour for Q&A.
