BEST PRACTICES IN BLENDED LEARNING: DEVELOPING A COMMUNITY OF PROFESSORS AND STUDENTS THROUGH BRICKS AND CLICKS
PRESENCESSocial Presence, Cognitive Presence, Teaching Presence

The scope of the project is to better understand how university professors can improve the quality of learning, teaching and the student experience through the development and delivery of blended learning courses.

Three questions drive the project: (1) Within the University of Ottawa, what conditions currently exist toward large scale adoption of blended learning? (2) What are the best practices in blended learning at the University of Ottawa and other leading provincial universities? (3) What action plans and tools need to be developed to support blended learning and teaching innovation?

Outcomes focus on disseminating project results to faculty decision makers, professors and students through different venues and methods.
