Reignite Teacher and Student Engagement with Blended Learning

The last two years have been mentally and emotionally exhausting for teachers and students. The pandemic and its impact on education have left many teachers feeling tired and disillusioned. Yet, teacher engagement is critical to achieving high levels of student engagement and improving learning outcomes. Understanding the aspects of this work that are cognitively, emotionally, and socially engaging is critical if we want to reignite our teachers’ passion for this profession. In an era when many feel burnt out or question the sustainability of this work, we must leverage a strategic blend of online and offline learning that allows teachers to invest time and energy in the human side of teaching. Join Dr. Catlin Tucker to explore how teachers can leverage blended learning to spend more time on the aspects of this work that positively impact their engagement and, in turn, increase student engagement.

Creating a Community of Inquiry
Teaching & Learning Online

As learning moves online, many teachers are unsure how to navigate this new learning landscape. The Community of Inquiry theoretical framework can support teachers in understanding their roles in a blended or online course, helping students to develop their social presence online, and engaging students in the construction of knowledge as part of an online learning community. Teaching is an art form that encompasses more than simply disseminating and collecting assignments. Join educator and best-selling author Dr. Catlin Tucker to explore teaching and learning online!

Activating Agency, Differentiation, Community, and Inquiry with Blended Learning

The pandemic taught educators several lessons:

Learning can happen anywhere, any time.

Human connection and participation in a learning community make learning rich and engaging.

Students are more likely to be motivated if they enjoy autonomy and agency.
So, how can teachers move forward in the face of so much change to design and facilitate dynamic student-centered learning experiences? Instead of relying on one model for every lesson, teachers need a robust toolbelt full of instructional models and engagement strategies they use to design learning experiences that give students agency, differentiate effectively, build community, and drive inquiry! Blended learning provides a sustainable path forward that frees teachers from the front of the room, allowing them to work directly with small groups and individual learners. This shift makes it possible for teachers to spend their precious class time on the aspects of this work that are most engaging and rewarding. Join Dr. Catlin Tucker as she shares highlights from her new book, The Complete Guide to Blended Learning.

Shifting Workflows
Let Students Lead & Avoid Teacher Burnout

Teachers are burning out at record levels. They’re drowning in unrealistic expectations and doing the lion’s share of the work in classrooms. It’s time to shift from time-consuming, teacher-led, and often frustratingly ineffective workflows to sustainable student-led workflows that position learners at the center of the learning experience. Grounding these student-led workflows in Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles and leveraging blended learning models to shift control to students can help all students develop into expert learners capable of acquiring information and making meaning. These reimagined workflows also free teachers from the front of the room to spend more time working alongside individual and small groups of learners.

The Shift to Student-Led: Reimagining Classroom Workflows with UDL and Blended Learningby Dr. Catlin Tucker

The Shift to Student-Led: Reimagining Classroom Workflows with UDL and Blended Learning

by Dr. Catlin Tucker

The Shift to Student-Led by Catlin R. Tucker & Katie Novak

Your Guide to Student-Led Learning

Catlin Tucker and Katie Novak have worked with too many educators who are frustrated and disillusioned with the teaching profession. They know that teachers are drowning in work and unrealistic demands. Many are mentally and emotionally exhausted by the uncertainty and constant change created by the pandemic. In this follow-up to UDL and Blended Learning, the authors have set out to help teachers reimagine their approach to this work so that it is sustainable and rewarding.

Each chapter in The Shift to Student-Led takes apart one traditional teacher-led workflow, examining the problems it presents teachers and students, what the research says versus what the reality in the classroom is, and how UDL and blended learning can free teachers from the “sage on the stage” role and place students at the center of their learning. These reimagined student-led workflows help students develop self-awareness, internal motivation, and self-regulation skills, which are critical to becoming expert learners.

Intended for K–12 educators, instructional coaches, and school leaders who want to create academically robust, inclusive learning communities, this book is full of principles, strategies, and resources that can be put into practice right away and at any level.
