Overview

The book constitutes a practical introduction to blended learning, illustrated by implementations across a broad spectrum of disciplines . It enables faculty unfamiliar with this mode to address the core challenge of blended learning—to link the activities in each medium so that they reinforce each other to create a single, unified, course—and offers models they can adapt.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Blended Learning: Across the Disciplines, Across the Academy is a collection of essays that provides wisdom for redesigning courses to fit a format that is "partially virtual, partially tangible." The five essays that form the heart of this book highlight fundamental values of blended learning: activity, interactivity, and a learning community. There is much to gain from the authors' arguments for the benefits of blended courses and practical tips for assignments in both "virtual" and "tangible" formats. For instructors who want to move beyond lecturing with three exams and a term paper and who appreciate the challenge of dabbling in something new to improve student learning, redesigning courses to fit a blended format is worth the work. I walk away from this book excited about the versatile and experimental nature of designing blended courses. Prepare to have your imagination sparked as you contemplate your own teaching."

"Blended Learning offers readers an opportunity to develop and/or refine online pedagogical teaching skills, strategies, and dispositions while enhancing overall teaching style in a blended learning environment. It takes a practical approach to blended learning course design, informed by academic practitioners. The book is easy to navigate and provides simple examples for application. As distance education channels continue to grow and expand, cultivating the craft of teaching in an online learning environment from an in-depth comprehensive knowledge base has become a highly sought-after skill. Readers can readily use the book as an instructional guide to eliminate complexities often associated with online and blended learning course design."

"writings on how to integrate a variety of pedagogical approaches in courses in both online and face-to-face interactions with students."
