Information Science Reference, Mar 31, 2011 - Education - 306 pages
The idea of combining face-to-face learning with some form on online learning made sense a decade ago as it allowed much more flexibility in delivering instruction to diverse groups of learners. Today, blended learning has become a mainstay for universities because of that flexibility, but more importantly, because of the thousands of dollars that can be saved by changing the mode of delivery so that there is much more online than face-to-face delivery.
Blended Learning across Disciplines: Models for Implementation presents a global perspective on blended learning and augments that perspective with examples and applications from leading scholars around the world. It highlights examples from the school system, from undergraduate classes, and from graduate classes and also discusses androgogical principles as they apply to blended learning situations.
