Virtual Learning Instructional Design

  • Lesson Planning for Synchronous and Asynchronous Instruction in the Hybrid and Virtual Classroom

    The purpose of understanding virtual instructional design is so that....

    • Educators will know the components of an effective lesson and how to implement the tenets of Blended Learning to support all learners (virtual and in-person) through virtual learning strategies.
    • Educators will know how to plan standards-aligned, rigorous, and engaging virtual instruction utilizing interactive and innovative technology-based tools. 
    • Educators will align synchronous and asynchronous instruction and design meaningful scaffolds to create a cohesive weekly/bi-weekly unit of study to ensure students are able to access grade level content.

  • When designing cohesive "virtual" instruction, the following Essential Question(s) can guide your thinking:

    How can I internalize key components of the virtual learning experience to design highly effective, standards-aligned virtual learning that includes:

    • meaningful live lessons that promote deeper understanding of the content, collaboration and discussion with built in CFUs
    • asynchronous playlists directly aligned to learning target
    • resources for anticipated scaffolds and enrichments
    • intentional intervention based on supporting access to grade level content and instructional resources?
    • technology integration that redefines and reimagines learning pathways?
