Event Overview and Highlights

The XBL experience combines the power of blended learning – online, direct, and community-based learning – with self-directed content, data-aligned sessions, and competency-based pathways.

The XBL Design: Xperience. Examine. Execute.

  • Begin your day by completing the Blended Practice Profile. Use the profile to understand your strengths on the continuum in six instructional domains and identify where to focus your learning.
  • Rotate between small group sessions, peer groups, instructional deep dives, digital resources, and interest-based discussions to improve your knowledge and skills. All attendee projects, artifacts, resources, and ideas are curated and shared.
  • Leave XBL with new blended practice strategies, self-created teaching plans, tools, and practical implementation techniques.
