Blended learning in higher education: research findings
Higher education innovators and institutional leaders have many expectations about blended learning. To get the most out of face-to-face and virtual learning environments, these must provide learners with flexible learning environments that overcome situational barriers for learning. Additionally, they must be pedagogically rich learning settings where different learning styles can be supported. Blended learning allows for the combination of a variety of offline learning ecologies (in classrooms, at work, at home, in the field) with a wealth of online resources.
