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."
