In light of the commitment in UNF's Work Plan to increase the percentage of courses offered
via online delivery, and the inclusion of hybrid and distance learning courses
in the University’s BOGperformance funding metrics, CIRT strives to provide support and services that facilitate the continued expansion
of these courses.
The Blended with a Purpose Kickstarter is an
introductory workshop intended to help faculty prepare a blended learning
course. Blended courses combine the best practices of online and face-to-face
instruction into a mix of pedagogically appropriate classroom and online
learning activities consistent with the objectives of the course.
The goal of this three-day seminar is to provide
faculty with an opportunity to develop fluency in the instructional and
technical strategies that support the design and delivery of blended courses.
CIRT invites UNF faculty who are interested in developing
a blended course to apply for the Blended with a Purpose Kickstarter.
Participants will engage in online and face-to-face activities to explore
concepts, strategies, and tools related to blended learning. UNF faculty
selected to participate and who complete all activities and assignments will
receive a $1000 stipend.
All full-time faculty are invited to apply and
15 applications will be selected based upon the degree to which the applicant
articulates how the course will benefit from the use of blended learning
strategies. The Blended Learning Toolkit provides a good
overview of blended learning and potential benefits that
may be helpful in completing an application.
Preference will be given to participants who
have not participated in CIRT’s TOL6100 seminar. The selection
process will attempt to identify participants who represent a broad range disciplines
Face-to-Face (F2F) Dates:
Some reading and assignments will be required prior to each session. Faculty must be
available from 10 am – 4 pm on F2F days.
Applications must be submitted online by February 1, 2016 and applicants will be notified by March 1, 2016.
