The use of technology in education has become part of our reality and will continue to be so into the future, as it not only provides us with many tools to use in formal education, but also offers our students a wide range of opportunities. This course aims to provide teachers with deeper understanding and the ability to apply blended learning in the current educational environment with a focus on developing students' skills that they will use not only in their school and academic career, but also in their daily life. Besides blended learning methodology, this course introduces various methods of conducting blended learning classes, offers practical tips and techniques, and prepares teachers for creating educational content that targets not just today's challenges but also gives students a solid basis for what is yet to come. In addition, this course introduces basic strategies for encouraging independent learning of students. Last but not least, teachers will have the opportunity to develop their own strategies for handling blended learning and the often changing learning environment that comes with it.
The course content and fundamental information will be introduced through thematic modules that focus on different elements of blended learning. It is based on practical demonstrations, a hands-on approach, interactive experiential exercises, and active participation within a group consisting of international participants with similar interests and needs.
