This session will explore the use of blended learning for professional development. During the 2017-2018 school year, four teachers participated in a blended, self-paced professional learning experience to learn two Content Enhancement Routines, instructional strategies to plan and lead learning. Teachers learned how to draft Course and Unit Organizers by watching videos, by reading articles and their guidebooks, and by receiving feedback through distance coaching from SIM Professional Developers. The process included the use of video coaching, earning SIM micro-credentials, and virtual conferencing technology for collaborative sessions. Session participants will be prompted to consider their own opportunities to implement blended learning and requested to provide feedback to the presenters on how to improve their future professional learning process with teachers.
