Because the field of blended and online learning continues to grow, BOLT curriculum requires participants to develop a Professional Learning Network (PLN). The Centre for Distance Education is excited to offer the BOLT Multi-Authored Blog - an innovative tool for continuing professional learning and community building. Connect with other professionals to engage with current research and share practical applications to incorporate into your teaching practice.
As well, an integral component to a PLN is locating professional organizations and associations that will support ongoing and current professional learning.
