This is an introductory course set-up to help practitioners develop a site plan for offering distance or blended learning to the adult learners.  It is also a prerequisite for IDEAL 102: Instructional Issues or IDEAL Program Administration.

Distance or blended learning teachers who have some experience teaching online will spend four weeks focusing on how to best support learners. Each participant develops a case study describing an instructional challenge. Together the cohort discusses each of the case studies, building a "community of practice" that remains available as a resource after the course is done. Through the discussion, each participant arrives at a few ideas to pilot. After a month of piloting, each teacher reports on their success in a webinar.

Blended learning and distance teachers with some prior experience will spend four weeks learning about how to evaluate online resources for using in distance and blended learning. Through several readings and discussion, the cohort will create a rubric for future resource evaluation and then pilot its use with one new learning resource they hope to integrate into their online instruction.


This course is for program managers who have had some experienced with distance or blended learning. The class is built around relevant articles and developing a case study, which the class discusses. It is an opportunity for program managers to share insight and information with each other. Through interaction with assigned literature and discussion of their case studies, each participant arrives at a few ideas to pilot to solve the issue described in the case study.  After a month of piloting they report back on their success in a webinar. Participants will also have the opportunity to gather information and develop narrative text that they can use in grant applications and state reporting.
