This is a workshop that Tracey Mollins and Maria Moriarty developed for the CUPE National Literacy Project Learners' Council in partnership with AlphaPlus.

The workshop was designed to give Learners' Council members experience with blended learning and an opportunity to develop a communication plan for talking about unions.

This workshop was facilitated face-to-face in November 2011 in Ottawa, Ontario.

This course was developed by Tracey Mollins.

The first version of this course was designed for AlphaRoute. AlpahRoute was an online learning environment for adults and is based in Ontario, Canada. AlphaRoute was conceived as a place where adult literacy students could learn online, improve their computer skills, and keep pace with the technology-driven changes in lifelong learning. Sadly, there has been no funding for courses since September 2008.

This version is one that was updated and redesigned for the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) instructors (CUPE 4400) to use in Literacy and Basic Skills (LBS) classrooms as part of the TDSB Blended Learning project. We developed a series of blended learning topics to model the approach for instructors. We visited each class and demonstrated the use of the courses to the instructors and learners and then visited them at the end of the course to evaluate the experience.
