This is a competency-based course that focuses on specific best practices that you will use to demonstrate your ability to transform a learning activity by applying digital pedagogy best practices. Through a series of learning activities and collaborative exercises, you'll consider the rationale and purpose of digital pedagogy, critique some common digital transformation models, and evaluate some sample activities. As you engage in reflection and discussion you'll consider the value of digital pedagogy for your blended course, and identify approaches that are most relevant to you.
