“The LearnIT project opens a fresh chapter today with its first teacher training event outside the Ontario Region of CIC. Calgary and Bow Valley College are the first to welcome LINC blended learning west of Thunder Bay. On Tuesday, January 7, Norquest College and Edmonton get their own introduction to the teacher PD and learner courseware. Later this week, the training team moves east to give Stage 1 workshops in Saint John and Halifax. By the end of January, additional events in Saskatoon and Winnipeg add up to LINC blended learning expansion into Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Welcome aboard LINC practitioners! It’s good to be working with you. We’ll wait until April 1 to see what that brings but we hope to welcome British Columbia and perhaps Newfoundland and Labrador and PEI.”
Mavis describes how her community college LINC program now implements the LINC online courseware and a blended learning approach in all classes. She describes what impact blended learning is having on the learners, teachers and the entire program. Learners now have more flexible options for learning and communicating. She tells how the key changes came about and profiles the ‘leading actors’.
Language teachers and program administrators who want to make the move to LINC blended learning begin with an important question: how do I get there from here? Pamela Manson and her colleagues at Algonquin College have made the big move. In this podcast Pamela describes how she became involved in LearnIT2teach and how that’s paying off for her teaching, her learners & her LINC program. 8 minutes.
