Blended & Online Learning & Teaching (BOLT) Staff Development


Join us for BOLT Bitesize, where you will participate in three synchronous online workshops over a period of three weeks. During this period, you will also complete Units 1-4 of BOLT: Designing Blended Learning, a Small Private Online Course (SPOC). This short course will introduce you to tools, techniques and relevant models to use in your blended or online teaching practice. You will also develop and submit a Learning Innovation Plan (LIP) to enable you to integrate these approaches into your learning and teaching context.

For enrolment information please visit http://eldss.edc.polyu.edu.hk/ams/activitydetail.aspx?activity_id=2036.



This Small Private Online Course (SPOC) from the BOLT team is designed to increase your knowledge and skills around designing blended learning and teaching. Through engaging videos, collaborative activities and more, the course takes you through the essentials of synchronous and asynchronous activities, which will be critical to the success of your blended approach.

Throughout the units you work towards producing a Learning Innovation Plan (LIP), in which you design a teaching and learning innovation that harnesses a blended approach. Get feedback from our course tutors to help with your learning design and support from our Case Study video series in which a colleague works though his blended innovation with the support of the BOLT team.

By the end of the BOLT Designing Blended Learning SPOC you will be able to:

  • Describe a blended approach to learning and teaching
  • Critically evaluate a blended approach and appropriate techniques and tools
  • Apply a blended approach, techniques and tools to your own teaching and learning context

This BOLT Designing Blended Learning SPOC can be considered as an alternative to the blended BOLT Course and BOLT Bitesize short-course that are facilitated at PolyU each year.
