How a Blended Learning Environment in Adult Education Promotes Sustainable Development in China
Yao, Chunlin
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v58 n3 p480-502 Nov 2018
The study adopts a semi-structured survey to examine the effects of a blended learning environment in adult education in promoting sustainable development. The study analyses the development of blended learning environments in China, and some challenges that China faces in sustainable development. Based on the analysis results, the study revealed that a blended learning environment could promote adult education development, reduce the development inequality between genders and geographically, as well as protect natural environments. A survey to adult learners verifies the aforementioned conclusion. Adult learners believe that a blended learning environment is an eco-friendly learning environment; it increases the opportunities for females and those living in rural areas to become educated and promotes their sustainable development. The research results may be beneficial for education policy makers and practitioners interested in sustainable development.
