14 November 2021 | 12:50 - 13:10 | Blended Learning

This workshop is based on a 4-days training course that I prepared during lock-down. This workshop was aimed at supporting teachers and heads of departments in the field of blended education due to its importance and the lack of effective practices which would definitely having a positive effect on the levels of progress and achievement of students, mainly due to my view, my studies and my scientific readings before and during my study of my Master’s on the weakness of educating teachers in this field, as well as the lack of correct concepts or useful workshops and courses for a wide range of teachers and department heads.
