Session Abstract

The online and blended learning environment will continue to expand and grow in the future as more demand for this educational modality is sought out. As historians and educators we need to embrace this technology, take risks, and explore all aspects and possibilities in this arena to help our discipline continue to flourish as well.  In this interactive session we will discuss experiences, tips, strategies, and thoughts on creating successful online and blended learning classes in the field of history.  First the panelists will share their own thoughts and ideas and then we are looking for an interactive, engaging discussion with session participants on identifying more methods to help student success in this booming environment.  Each panelist brings their own unique experiences to the session, including lessons learned, design aspects, and more based on their online and blended experiences.
