The Avi Chai Foundation would like to invite day school leaders and teachers to register for one of the Alvo Institute’s online courses in its Spring Practitioners’ Circle series. For Leaders: Design and Planning for School Blended Innovation. For Teachers: Implementing Personalized Learning with Blended Methods in the Classroom.

For Leaders: Design and Planning for School Blended Innovation

This course is an exploration of blended learning with a focus on moving from theory to action as participants learn how to mobilize a team, identify how blended can support clear, measurable goals, and develop detailed plans for a successful, on-time and on-budget blended learning launch. Each of the eight topics takes approximately two hours to move through, depending on the depth at which you work.

For Teachers: Implementing Personalized Learning with Blended Methods in the Classroom.

This course serves as a virtual collaboration and innovation space for educators who want to transform their teaching and students’ learning using blended learning as a pathway to personalized instruction. What do you need to know to get started blending? What are the first steps to take? Dive into a series of topics first by gaining a strong understanding of the “how” and “why” of each and then by actually trying it out in your classroom. Participants will use cycles of innovation to plan, implement, reflect, and make adjustments, all while receiving support from our team and fellow practitioners. Topics include small group learning, procedures and pacing, use of data, higher order thinking skills, a brief overview of blended learning, and more. Each topic module might take 2-3 hours to complete, including preparation, implementation, and reflection.

What does participation look like? You decide. You choose.

  • The courses just opened. You have until June 30, 2016 to complete your course. The earlier you register, the more time you have in the course. We provide a recommended sequence but participants determine how they will consume the content and participate.
  • You decide how much time to invest. Most participants spend 1-2 hours each week preparing on their own and 1 hour participating in live webinars (or watching the recorded sessions).
  • You choose how deep you go and what topics you explore. Choose from a rich variety of research articles, case studies, videos, templates and interactive forums. Everything is available to you 24/7 online. Optional assessments let you check your own understanding.
