While many studies have investigated blended learning effectiveness at the course level, very few provide guidance for adoption and implementation of blended learning at the institutional level. Accordingly, this webinar will share a framework for institutional adoption and implementation of blended learning that was developed from research exploring the efforts of over a dozen institutions of higher education. Graham and Porter will identify some key markers related to institutional strategy, structure, and support that allow universities and colleges to gauge what kind of progress they are making towards institutionalizing blended learning. Participants will discuss key issues that administrators should be aware of in order to guide their institutions to progress along the stages of (1) Awareness/Exploration, (2) Adoption/Early Implementation, and (3) Mature Implementation/Growth.
