Think Pieces 2015

Blended and online learning in the CSU context

In 2015 the theme focuses on blended and online learning in the CSU context. Blended learning can be understood in many ways. We're taking a broad view in this Project to stimulate conversation about blending the best bits of learning and teaching together for the success of our students. How does CSU understand and implement blended learning? How does distance and online blend? How does distance and face-to-face blend? How does face-to-face and online blend? How does workplace learning and classroom learning blend? How does free and open resources blend with own and commercial content? And so on...

The Think Pieces 2015 Project provides an opportunity for an ongoing, open dialogue about how some of the CSU community are thinking about these challenges and opportunities. CSU targets and our progress towards these targets can also be explored!
