Myth Busting: E-Channel and Blended Learning

e-Channel has been part of LBS first as a pilot project and then as a program for many years, but there are many misconceptions and mysteries surrounding it.

Come join Linda Wright, Director of Sioux-Hudson Literacy Council’s “Good Learning Anywhere” program, as we bust some myths about e-Channel and discuss how blended learning can help your community-based agency reach its targets and enhance learner outcomes!
Marketing with Flair and Success

Join Suzanne Gibson for a highly engaging and interactive session on how to effectively build awareness and promote your community-based literacy organization and inspire the community to get involved.
