Join us Wednesday, May 17 – Thursday, May 18, 2017 for the sixth annual Blended Learning in the Liberal Arts conference, held at Bryn Mawr College.
We’re excited to announce that our keynote speaker will be Dr. Roopika Risam, Assistant Professor of English and Secondary English Education at Salem State University. Risam’s work combines digital humanities, hybrid and online teaching, and post-colonial studies. Her talk title is “Networks of Pedagogy: Notes towards a Decolonized Classroom.”
Staying a bit longer, and interested in transformative teaching? Join us for the JupyterDay Philly, starting immediately after the Blended Learning conference.

About the Conference
These conferences are a forum for faculty and staff to share resources, techniques, findings, and experiences related to blended learning. Our definition of blended learning is quite broad, encompassing any combination of online and face-to-face instruction that supports close faculty-student interactions and high-impact, student-centered pedagogies, promotes life-long learning, or otherwise contributes to the goals and mission of a liberal arts education.
While panels will cover all topics related to blended learning in the liberal arts, particular themes of the 2017 conference include:
- Open educational resources
- Using blended learning to reduce costs/increase access
- Student e-portfolios and other innovative ways of assessing student learning
- Methods for building and framing digital skills, particularly in relation to student or curricular goals
- Blended learning projects in a wider context — i.e., department, program, or college-level initiatives that look at blended learning beyond the boundaries of a single course
