With us, the teacher comes first: resonating with their intrinsic desire to teach effectively, and their own personal and professional passion for a subject over a lifetime.

At StudioBlended we developed a unique course – just this one: the resilience course. Through this course, the need to go blended, becomes an opportunity to make design resilient, and receive teacher trainer that is both foundational and a refresher: it not only covers ‘blended’ but, more fundamentally, all the essentials of technique and pedagogy in design.  

This page serves like a portal, for you to explore the 6 variations of our unique resilience course. They all focus on blended curriculum design.

If you appreciate our modular StudiOpedia, with its unique and finite ‘form aids function’ methodology for curriculum design - the resilience course is where you are equipped with its technical backbone: the open-building framework.

6 variations
We offer 6 variations of the resilience course. They form a spectrum, going from equipping you in deep technical and human resilience in a team/peer setting, to more light touch variations that meet you right where you are, and take it with you from there. Some focus on course design, others on designing just a module.

Get a quick impression with our 1 table overview showing you the differences between the variations.

We made a sketch of what the learning journey will look like, in the form of a ‘blended learning wave’ to show you all 6 variations. You will find these sketch es in our brochure with the options and corresponding price which follows in the new academic year (2022).

The nature of the course
What is the actual course like apart from the blended learning wave you see below? 

The point of the course is not to write a lot or be behind a screen a lot. It is to interact, understand, imagine, try new formats and lenses, gain new understanding through the formats offered, receive lots of guidance, and shape and craft that one output, your design. Very much like in a workplace - but done (partly or wholly) remotely and asynchronous with synchronous or face to face guidance at essential moments.

What all variations have in common moreover, is a bichronous element, a thoughtful integration of synchronous (teaching) and asynchronous (self-paced learning). We include an experiental element for all participants, so that, they feel more confident in finding their way in online teaching.

We curate peer groups along technical fields. The resilience course is also unique because it is a journey, one that you undertake together with other peer teachers in this season.

What stands out is that the course is highly tailored and personalized to you (bespoke), and the teacher trainer follows your pace. The teacher trainer is there especially for you. That way, you are able to combine the course with work and family obligations, and windows of opportunity to create time dedicated to the course output.

Our teacher trainer deeply understands the profession and the unique challenges it has, and is in a good position to come alongside you, whilst you are on the job or planning for it, and see where you can gain resilience. Beginning at your drawing table, we come alongside designing more structurally sound foundations for teaching and for you to enjoy your very own days, your time, and your life. Our idea is that you can enjoy this beautiful profession of being a teacher well beyond your retirement even, as long as you design for resilience.

There is so much more to say about this resilience course, which is better done in a phone call. Feel free to contact our teacher trainer, Tikvah Breimer (MSc MEd MSc), and schedule a call to see if the resilience course is for you. tikvah@studioblended.com

We are here especially for you in technical and human resilience by design. #StudioBlended Keep asking: does it make sense? This is your day, in your life - enjoy every moment.

“I took the resilience course, and now deliver the actual course (summer in Europe, 2021)

Suddenly I sense I dare to improvise with the technical and pedagogical formats the resilience course trained me in. The capacity I developed to design a technically resilient course,

now helps me so much to be focused on where I’m going with the teaching.

Students start to reach much higher levels already halfway the semester.

They start thanking me, that the class was wonderful, it’s so encouraging, even if everything is still on distance. When the parents are happy – the children are happy. It’s the same with teachers!

I feel secure the material is solid and lasting, so I can build on it, incrementally.

I dare to learn by doing, everything you (Tikvah) said is true – I’m calmer, more self-confident, and daring to experiment more. The structured approach the course brought, now brings me deep excitement to keep growing and learning myself too, not just students. It’s so rewarding.

You are so right we don’t need more heavy and extensive technology for excellent higher education,

we need excellent technique and pedagogy, resilience.

The course was a gift from heaven. I want you to train our entire team of professors!”
