MV offers professional development course for school leaders
Michigan Virtual‘s PD course — Understanding Blended Learning for School Leaders — brings together a cohort of school leaders to engage in approximately 25 hours of studying and sharing over five weeks.
The course combines synchronous and asynchronous online learning, with an expectation of consistent weekly engagement by all participants. While there are no onsite sessions in the course, participants will engage in at least one live web conference meeting during the course.
The majority of time will be spent learning and interacting with other school leaders asynchronously through a learning management system, allowing participants time to share ideas and plan together to lead the shift to personalized blended learning in their school.
The Understanding Blended Learning for School Leaders PD course is designed to help school administrators and leaders understand the landscape of blended and online learning. Participants will examine a variety of blended and online learning models and consider how these new personalized instructional approaches can benefit their schools. Participants will study and discuss how the implementation of blended learning impacts four focus areas within their school – content, teaching, technology and operations.
Michigan Virtual is a private, nonprofit Michigan corporation established by the State of Michigan in 1998 to serve as a champion for online learning. It is the parent organization of the Michigan Virtual for Students and Michigan Virtual Learning Research Institute.
