A Framework for Institutional Adoption and Implementation of Blended Learning in Higher Education
Graham, Charles R.; Woodfield, Wendy; Harrison, J. Buckley
Internet and Higher Education, v18 p4-14 Jul 2013
There has been rapid growth in blended learning implementation and research focused on course-level issues such as improved learning outcomes, but very limited research focused on institutional policy and adoption issues. More institutional-level blended learning research is needed to guide institutions of higher education in strategically adopting and implementing blended learning on campus. This research investigates six cases of institutional adoption of blended learning to examine the key issues that can guide university administrators interested in this endeavor. Cases were selected to represent institutions at various stages of blended learning adoption including (1) awareness/exploration, (2) adoption/early implementation, and (3) mature implementation/growth. Cases are used to identify and elaborate on core issues related to institutional strategy, structure, and support, spanning the adoption stages. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
