Karen Cator, director of the office of Educational Technology, will discuss blended learning on a panel at the Education Writers Association annual seminar at 3:45 p.m. ET on Friday, May 18 in Philadelphia. Blended learning combines in-person teaching with online courses so that students can work at their own pace while receiving face-to-face attention.

Cator will be one of four panelists who will discuss the benefits and challenges of blended learning. Additional attendees will also include Lisa Andrejko, superintendent, Quakertown Community Schools; Scott Benson, program officer, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Michael Horn, co-founder, Innosight Institute; and Chris Lehmann, principal, Science Leadership Academy. Jonathan Schorr, partner, NewSchools Venture Fund, will moderate the panel, titled “Blending Classroom and Online Learning: Best of Both Worlds?”.
