iNACOL Teacher Talk Webinar Investigates Supporting and Sustaining Blended Learning Initiatives

WASHINGTON, DC (October 9, 2015) – How can educators ensure that blended learning is sustained throughout the year? How can change agents safeguard blended programs from losing momentum and impact as the school year progresses?

On Thursday, October 15, 2015, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. ET, the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL) will host a Teacher Talk Webinar exploring answers to these questions.

In this webinar, a panel of experienced blended learning teachers will offer strategies on ensuring the excitement for blended learning that existed at the start of the school year is sustained into the future. The presenters represent organizations at different stages of blended learning implementation, and they will offer unique strategies to personalize learning.

Susan Patrick, President and CEO of iNACOL, said, “For the first time in history, we have the opportunity to provide every child with a world-class education driven by powerful, personalized experiences. The education leaders in this webinar will tell their stories, showcase promising practices, and empower change agents to create supportive and sustainable blended learning environments that prepare all students for college, career and citizenship.”

This webinar is free to attend—participants are invited to register here for final details and login information.
