In a blended classroom, teachers need to be proficient in many areas:

  • individualized instruction for a diverse student population,
  • the effective use of associated technology, and
  • specific strategies for managing a blended classroom.

Professional learning courses from UTeach can assist teachers in improving their practice in these areas.  

Our courses are designed with the time constraints of teachers in modern classrooms in mind.

Asynchronous assignments and discussion boards are supplemented with timely instructor feedback and scheduled, virtual office hours.

UTeach-quality content

The courses in the Blended Learning Academy are research-based and have been developed by UTeach Master Teachers/clinical faculty, in consultation with Joan Hughes, Associate Professor of Learning Technologies at UT Austin. This pairing of expert teacher preparation practitioners and research faculty for course development ensures that the courses are grounded in both the realities of the classroom and the latest research on effective pedagogies, practices, and tools.

The Blended Learning Academy courses are further based on the Blended Teaching Competencies outlined by the International Association for K–12 Online Learning.
