Book Description

Essentials for Blended Learning provides a practical, streamlined approach for creating effective learning experiences by blending online activities and the best of face-to-face teaching. Effective blended learning requires rethinking of teaching practices and a redesign of course structure. Suitable for instructors in any content area, this book simplifies these difficult challenges without neglecting important opportunities to transform teaching. The revised second edition is more streamlined and easier to use, and includes more real-world examples of blended teaching and learning, the latest technologies, and additional research-based learning activities.

Reviews

"Essentials for Blended Learning is an accessible, practical guide for educators interested in integrating online technology into their courses and programs. The authors successfully promote the idea that quality in instructional design requires thought, deliberation, and firm pedagogical grounding. As education turns more to blended learning, this book provides invaluable insights."—Anthony G. Picciano, Professor, Hunter College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York, USA

"This book far outstrips anything currently on the market in its combination of depth, clarity, and practicality. A refreshingly modern take on the subject, it integrates solid research on blended course design with a concise, step-by-step approach to building blended courses. Novice faculty will appreciate being led gently through the process of creating a blended course, while more experienced designers will find reading it cover-to-cover a pleasant way to brush up on new trends in the field. Faculty developers will perhaps find it most useful of all – if you are looking for a single book on blended learning to give to your workshop participants, this is the one." —Michael Caulfield, Director of Blended and Networked Learning, Washington State University Vancouver
