  • This webinar explores the concept of Blended Learning and what it might look like for teachers and learners, including the integration of in-school and other learning environments, and the use of a range of tools within diverse learning tasks. Moving from theory to practice, the discussion focuses on the need to plan for blended learning and design blends that are fit for different contexts, to ensure a greater flexibility in the learning process. The role of teachers is key in designing and implementing such blends.

    Speakers include:
