Blended and Online Teaching in the Humanities: Pedagogical Tools for Design and Implementation

This book offers tested practices for successful design, implementation and teaching of blended and online courses in French and cultural studies. Founded on recent research, it promotes a contextualized, accessible environment through increased online access to authentic materials, face-to-face creative interaction, and embedded formative assessment. Each chapter focuses on major pedagogical issues associated with teaching blended and online courses, including instructional design, teaching tools adapted to a media-rich learning environment, and formative evaluation techniques through rubric-based assessment, self-evaluation and peer interaction.

The book will appeal to humanities faculty and teaching assistants who plan the transition from the traditional classroom environment to blended and online teaching. The examples provided throughout clearly indicate that a good combination of proven pedagogies and technology-supported strategies will greatly enhance the quality of students’ learning through the acquisition of advanced linguistic skills and cultural competence in preparation for bilingual career certification, work and study abroad, and will lead to a deeper understanding of blended and online teaching and the future use of technology in higher education.

Designed for use in small and large undergraduate courses in colleges and universities around the world, the book will be a major asset to any library collection looking to expand its humanities and education collections and reference sections.
