Elevating Learning Through Diverse Educational Experiences at Blend LAC

Through its framework, Full Spectrum Learning creates a vocabulary for the examination of a broad range of learning environments and encourages us to share stories about transformative teaching and learning experiences.

The Full Spectrum Learning Workshop at T3 + BlendLAC focuses on the shift of classes over the past year. We would love for this workshop to have both faculty and student voice. To help with this, faculty, please click the link below to participate and fill out the form describing the courses you teach, one by one, placing that class on the grid for where you taught it in a “normal” semester (ex. Fall 2019) and then for this upcoming fall semester. Students, if a professor sent this page to you, please fill out the form for their course you took.

The workshop will be held at 10am CST on Wednesday, July 22nd

We will be using Unhangout on the day of our workshop. Please familiarize yourself with their privacy policy and terms of service. We will update this page on the day of the workshop with the link to participate in the synchronous event.

The notion of FSL derives from the conception that the needs of students can be met through the usage of diverse teaching strategies and learning experiences. Through the variety of instruction and experiences available to students, they individually discover what is the most impactful and motivating within their education.

Applying this notion to the college setting, the principle of FSL applies two key elements of college teaching to the instruction of diverse course content:

  1. The level and types of technology used in a course
  2. The degree to which the professor incorporates active learning practices

By crossing these two continuum, the FSL team created a matrix that allows the faculty member to situate his or her practice. The underlying principle of FSL is that meaningful learning can occur in each quadrant of the matrix. The goal of FSL is to facilitate a diversity of practices across fields of study, such that all students experience a range of approaches to teaching and learning during their time at the college.
