Synopsis

Teaching in Blended Leaning Environments provides a

coherent framework in which to explore the transformative concept of

blended learning. Blended learning can be defined as the organic

integration of thoughtfully selected and complementary face-to-face and

online approaches and technologies. A direct result of the

transformative innovation of virtual communication and online learning

communities, blended learning environments have created new ways for

teachers and students to engage, interact, and collaborate. The authors

argue that this new learning environment necessitates significant role

adjustments for instructors and generates a need to understand the

aspects of teaching presence required of deep and meaningful learning

outcomes.





Built upon the theoretical framework of the Community of Inquiry

- the premise that higher education is both a collaborative and

individually constructivist learning experience - the authors

present seven principles that provide a valuable set of tools for

harnessing the opportunities for teaching and learning available

through technology. Focusing on teaching practices related to the

design, facilitation, direction and assessment of blended learning

experiences, Teaching in Blended Learning Environments

addresses the growing demand for improved teaching in higher

education.
