Blended Learning with Open Education Resources - Summer Institute for New Teachers

University of Idaho

***Here is the link for our daily agenda.

This free summer institute is a collaborative effort between the Doceo Center and Idaho Digital Learning Academy (IDLA) to introduce new teachers to the tools and pedagogy of blended learning with open education resources.  The Blended Learning with Open Education Resources Summer Institute will take place July 27-31 in the Doceo Center Lab at the University of Idaho Moscow Campus AND continue for 5 days throughout the 2015-16 school year.

Participation is limited to new teachers, specifically teachers with five or fewer years of experience.  

Our goal is to immerse teachers in a blended learning environment where we'll model best practices and introduce the benefits of utilizing open education resources.  Throughout this 5 day institute, participants will:

  • understand the qualities and skills of a blended teacher
  • evaluate an LMS
  • build a library of open education resources in an LMS to support their content area
  • create digital assessments to provide immediate data and feedback to guide instruction

Two PD credits will be awarded for the summer of 2015 and paid for by IDLA.  Participants will be able to earn an additional two PD credits during the 2015-16 school year (at a cost of $60 per credit).

Lodging for those traveling from a distance will be paid for by the Doceo Center.

The five days during the school year are intended for implementation, feedback, reflection, and problem solving.  The dates and locations for these sessions will be determined during the summer session and will include the following:

  • one site visit (we visit your classroom)
  • two workshops during school days at varied locations (within easy driving distance)
  • two videoconferences
