When thinking about a Blended Learning course I am a bit hesitant. I love the idea of blending synchronous and asynchronous phases as both offer a variety of opportunities and can encourage learning in different ways.

Unfortunately, I had a bit of a medical issue and could not attend the meetings for most of topic 3. They also coincided with the busiest part of the semester, where I had many teaching arrangements, writing, and administrative tasks. This made keeping on track immensely difficult.
