About the Seminar

This seminar is co-organized by the Centre for Information Technology in Education (CITE) and the HKU Knowledge Team

This seminar will highlight the work of the Sloan Consortium (www.sloan-c.org) in promoting quality in the development of blended learning courses and programs in higher education. Over the past three years, the Consortium with funding from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation has sponsored a series of workshops/conferences on blended learning concentrating on issues such as definitions, models, research, best practices, and institutional planning. This presentation will frame the work of the Consortium on blended learning within the larger context of the evolution of the online learning movement in higher education. Special attention will be given to blended learning as the "sleeping giant" of online instruction -- and not just as an outcome but as a method of faculty/course development. With the help of a light touch, faculty can work collaboratively to share the resources that go into blended learning in ways that give them ownership and eschew expensive incentives and support as well as mandates and directives. Models will be provided of this "grass roots" means of having faculty proceed by (and largely develop their own) models. Further details on the topics to be discussed can be found at the website for the 2006 Blended Learning Workshop held in Chicago at: (http://www.uic.edu/depts/oee/blended/preview/draft/Default.asp )
