Distance and blended learning have grown greatly during the last decade, offering opportunities to connect students but also introducing new challenges in the learning landscape. The Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp (ITM) and the Institute of Public Health, Bengaluru, India jointly organise the second workshop on Distance/Blended Learning 'Get Started, Keep Moving' from 19 until 23 September 2016 at ITM.

The main goal of this workshop is to:

  1. Go through the planning, design, and implementation process of creating distance or blended learning modules
  2. Provide an opportunity to get familiar with a variety of distance/blended formats
  3. Get acquainted with e-facilitation and e-assessment tools
  4. Generate online materials from an initial raw project during the workshop.

The workshop targets participants from ITM’s partner institutions, LINQED and alumni network,  who are either just getting started with eLearning or are already experienced with distance learning activities but willing to advance to the next level.

In a unique format the workshop targets ‘pairs’: subject-matter experts (planning to deliver educational topics in either blended or distance learning format) and ICT specialists (taking care of the IT part of the project).

The workshop is conceived with an interactive case-based approach, allowing plenty of hands-on session. Participant-pairs will deliver an almost ‘ready to use’  e-product by the end of the workshop.
