A group of University of Nottingham PhD students are designing a CDF bid to host a workshop that gives fellow postgraduates an opportunity to develop their understanding of blended learning pedagogy. Blended learning is learning that supports students’ face-to-face education through digital mediums and takes advantage of the pedagogical opportunities offered by Virtual Learning Environments such as Moodle. VLEs are becoming an increasingly important aspect of higher education and the ability to demonstrate proficiency in them is invaluable on the modern academic job market. We would love the support and assistance of fellow M4C students in setting up and advertising this workshop. No experience in VLEs or blended learning is required, only a willingness to learn more about this highly important professional skill.
