Designing blended synchronous learning sessions

The following pages introduce blended synchronous learning (BSL) activities and will assist you in implementing these activities in your BSL lesson plans.

It is highly recommended to provide student guidance in your LMS subject on the necessary student-facing information and guides on any specific online tools that will be used in your BSL sessions. This is a requirement for the recipients of the Designing BSL Sessions LTI. The student LMS guides page is a good start and there are guides for every solution in the University’s online toolkit.

Furthermore, as students may not be familiar with dual delivery it is also important to clarify what this means for them. To assist you with this step import the dual delivery welcome page from Commons. To do this, go to the Commons link on the left-hand side menu in the LMS and use the search function to search for ‘Welcome information for students in dual delivery’.
