Leading the Way in Blended Learning Blended Learning Training
Taking Education to the Next Level
Blended learning is a formal education program in which a student learns at least in part through online learning, and the methods along each student’s learning path within a course or subject are connected to provide an integrated learning experience.
Michigan Virtual supports educators, schools and districts by providing the best in blended learning resources and courses. We can also provide support and customized training in blended learning to better serve schools.
Our blended learning training opportunities include:
Blended Learning Live!
A two-day, immersive event
Are you an administrator looking to implement blended or online learning in your district? Attend our Blended Learning Live event!
This two-day experience will help district teams design, prepare, and implement student-centered learning initiatives for online or blended-learning models for the 2017-2018 school year. This event is for teams of five, including at least one district or building leader and one teacher.
The cost for a five-person Michigan team is $250 and $50 per person after that. Out-of-state pricing is $1975 for a team and $395 per person after that.
“Blended Learning Live! ranks up there with the best professional learning experience I’ve had. As an educator who does not have a background in instructional technology, the content of this 2-day series helped me to easily understand the possible entry points into blended learning a teacher can choose from based on his/her readiness.” — Meaghan Gauthier, Alpena Public Schools
