Blended Learning is any teaching that combines traditional, face-to-face instruction with online or digital components.

See the College’s Ask Athena technology knowledge base for available resources and self-help guides or chedule a One-on-one consultation with an educational technology specialist who can help you identify the right tools for your pedagogical goals, design engaging digital content, and provide hands-on instruction to students. We can also bring in colleagues from the Makerspace and Digital scholarship for curricular projects that overlap with their specialties.
Most classrooms on campus are equipped for lecture capture and hybrid instruction and several provide computers for student use. Faculty, staff, and students can also borrow CD/DVD drives, cameras, microphones and other equipment from the circulation desk and laptops from the help desk in Canaday Library.
These grants are available for curricular projects that involve innovative use of digital technologies and require additional resources, such as guest speakers or training, equipment and software not provided by the college.
