April teaching and learning resources
A short, curated list of articles, conferences, podcasts, books, whitepapers or videos for teaching and learning professionals.
Whitepaper: Building Out Blended Learning Environments for Higher Education
Blended learning represents a new approach to pedagogy that combines the best attributes of both in-person and online instruction. Well-planned blended learning curricula empower students to take ownership of their learning, increase flexibility for students and faculty, and allow institutions to deliver high-quality instruction at a lower cost.
Webinar: Online, In-Person, or Hybrid? Yes
The opportunities and needs for technology-enabled learning in higher education have changed significantly over the past three years. Faculty members now have a great deal more experience using technology tools to support their teaching, and pedagogical conversations about how to use technology to advance learning goals have matured rapidly.
Attend this webinar to participate in the latest discussions about optimizing modalities to help students achieve learning outcomes through intentional course design, strategic adoption of technologies, and tested approaches to faculty engagement. You’ll hear from leaders in the EDUCAUSE community as they share thoughts and case studies, and make sure to bring your questions!

Toolkit: BlendKit Course: DIY Project Tasks
The BlendKit Course is a set of subject matter-neutral, open educational resources related to blended learning and available for self-study or for group use. Periodically, these materials will also be used as the basis for a facilitated open, online course. Get on the mailing list to stay informed about BlendKit developments, including information on the next facilitated cohort.
Resource: Inclusive Language Resources
“Inclusive Language” reflects the mindfulness that we have when using language: we can intentionally create inclusive interactions with our uses of language. With this intentionality, we can avoid situations where the people around us may be inadvertently or deliberately excluded, dismissed, or stigmatized. Our choice in language helps us create and sustain environments that are respectful and comfortable.
