What is Blended Professional Development?

Blended PD combines face-to-face and online learning activities.

Face-to-face activities include workshops, professional learning communities (PLC), coaching, and mentoring. Self-guided online activities include learning from websites and blogs, webinars, online discussions and forums, and virtual courses. To design effective blended PD, facilitators should sequence related online and offline PD activities as shown in the example below.
