"Blended learning refers to environments that combine face-face instruction with technology-mediated instruction. The most common model is the 'flipped' classroom, where lectures are viewed online outside of class time, leaving more time for productive discussion, laboratory work, and problem solving. In other models, discussion time can be shifted to online platforms, or the syllabus can include a combination of synchronous and asynchronous learning modules. There is good evidence that the use of blended learning can result in greater mastery of content and metacognitive skills, as well enhancing student engagement and satisfaction. The Georgia Institute of Technology has been a leader in experimenting with various formats of blended learning courses. Supported by the research and development resources provided by the Center for 21st Century Universities, instructors have implemented blended learning models over a range of courses. This book brings together case studies that document the design and learning outcomes of blended learning courses at Georgia Tech. The focus on one institution allows the disparate subject matter and models to be seen against a consistent background of institutional support and analysis. This set of case studies provides teachers and instructional designers with a rich array of examples and models to use as inspiration for their own course design. The editors have also included chapters on researching and designing effective course assessments that can measure engagement and learning outcomes"--
