Michael Simonson, Ph.D., Professor, at NSU’s Abraham S. Fischler College of Education and School of Criminal Justice will host a short “zoominar” titled, Blending In – Returning to the Classroom by Mini-Blending your Class, via zoom on Wednesday, May 27 12:00 p.m. EST.

This session will explain one of the most popular ways to blend a course, known as MINI-flipping or MINI-blending, which involves identifying single concepts — the building blocks of course content — and recording that content for remote delivery. Face-to-face sessions, whether with the entire class enrollment or in a divided class, is then reserved for discussions and explanations–approaches that work when social distancing is required.

Simonson is a professor in the Instructional Technology and Distance Education program. He has authored four major textbooks dealing with distance education, instructional technology, instructional computing, and instructional media. His two most recent books received first place book awards from the Association for Educational Communications and Technology.  He is also the founding editor of the Quarterly Review of Distance Education, Distance Learning Journal, and Proceedings of Papers presented at the Annual Conventions of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology.
