From Reactionary to Revolutionary: Rethinking pedagogy for blended learning


Friday 25 June 2021 | 16:00 BST


About this webinar

Now that schools are building a long-term blended learning strategy, it is essential to consider not just what devices are used but also what digital pedagogies are in place to drive learning outcomes. To develop a truly effective digital strategy, schools must focus not only on digital literacy skills, but also the complexities of blended learning design.

  • In this session key questions surrounding pedagogical reform are discussed, such as:
  • How is the accelerated use of technology changing the ways in which we teach?
  • How must schools reconsider their pedagogical approaches to ensure the same quality of learning for students in both remote and in-classroom settings?
  • How might we adapt the curriculum for a blended learning approach?
  • How can we keep accessibility and inclusion in mind during learning design?
