FLaMe is a professional development program that introduces Macquarie staff to some of the key principles and techniques for successfully blending online and face-to-face teaching. Participants are supported to redesign a current iLearn unit or create a new one for blended delivery.
Dr Albert Atkin participated in the FLaMe program earlier this year. “Even though I have quite a lot of teaching experience, the FLaMe course was very enlightening for me and I have been able to put much of what I learned there to use. More importantly, I think it has improved my teaching, and I am confident that it has made the learning experience for my students much better. The resources and techniques for developing an online community, for instance, have been especially important for how I want to teach. I have already made use of many of the course’s insights and I am exploring ideas about synchronous virtual classroom space even further.”
“It helps that the teaching team are so knowledgeable and open, and the learning environment so relaxed and collegial too. Really, a great course and I got so much from it, and I’d recommend it to anyone”.
