The panel will share their experiences teaching in two learning spaces: the virtual, online environment and the face-to-face classroom. They will highlight both the successes and challenges of a blended model of instruction. Monica Sanchez-Flores (Sociology) will address how providing online resources in advance (podcasts, videos, readings) can increase engagement in class discussions, as well as how online discussions can be used to further students' understanding of written assignments. Kim Munich (Nursing) will share teaching techniques that engage students online and her own tips for teaching online. Jay Goddard (Social Work and Human Services) will relay his experience using blended approaches to increase course offerings in the small community of Williams Lake. Through these panelists’ experiences, session participants will gain some practical ideas for implementing blended learning in their own practice
