How are you doing with your dive into distance education and blended learning? These Coffee Hours are for you to strengthen your and your program’s practices. Each Coffee Hour will spend the first 45 minutes or so on your questions, and the remaining time will be on a specific topic requested by the field. 

The topic is how to check in with students and support them on issues such as homework and attendance. While the facilitator will have suggestions, please come willing to share your own materials and strategies.

The webinar for this day is for those with 1+ years of experience with distance or blended learning. For those who started this year, you may prefer to join the second webinar. See the Description section below to register.

You will have the opportunity to share your work, ask questions, exchange ideas, and discuss research-based practices. To ensure enough time for questions and discussion, our Coffee Hours are 90 minutes (not 60)!


    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • Administrators, instructors, and others with some experience in distance education or blended learning who are interested in building their knowledge and skills in these areas

To make the Coffee Hour as productive as possible, please post your questions, and any resources or strategies you are toying with and would like to share by posting to our discussion Padlet.

  • This Coffee Hour is for those who have 1+ years of experience with distance or blended learning.
