The following two short videos provide an overview of blended learning and its benefits:

In case you can’t wait for the workshop and want more…
If you are intrigued and wish to continue exploring how to get started with blended learning please read my blog post . I point to Faculty Development for Blended Teaching and Learning at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee/Sloan Consortium which is still one of the best online resources for blended learning they put a priority on purposeful design and start from the learning outcomes/objectives.
So many other resources start with the blending activities but until you are clear on what you want your students to learn/do (based on the course learning outcomes) you run the risk have having great blending activities but no alignment. If you want to take your learners deeper then you need to start with your learning outcomes.
