Boone, Joyce
International Journal of Educational Management, v29 n3 p275-283 2015
Purpose: There are two conditions that threaten to derail the American education system as we know it: the poor state of the US economy in America and the less than effective structure of the American education system. Researchers and practitioners are searching to identify tools and strategies that can help to restore confidence in the soundness of the US education system. One such strategy is blended learning delivery formats. The purpose of this paper is to examine implications of and recommend blended learning strategies. Design/Methodology/Approach: This writing presents a description of the problem, an abridged review of related literature, a discussion of the possibilities for blended learning in academic organizations, and the associated transformational change implications. It is presented as a decision-making tool for administrators to consider including blended learning formats in their strategies to address the effects of the questionable outlook of the US economy and the outdated structure of the US education system. Findings: The writing concludes with recommendations for leading the change to blended learning formats in learning organizations. Originality/Value: The information in the paper is presented as a decision-making tool for educational administrators in considering blended learning strategies for their organizations.
