Reviews and Testimonials
International contributors in educational technology, adult education, multiculturalism, and instructional systems address blended learning and teaching, stressing that blended learning should not only be driven by course outcomes, but also by attention to the cultural context and the needs and interests of students, instructors, administrators, and practitioners. Section 1 highlights theory and Section 2 looks at transcultural students' ways of knowing. Section 3 looks at curriculum design in a diverse world, and Section 4 presents cases on technology and global education, including a case from Siberia Russia demonstrating technology integration in professional development of teachers in a post-totalitarian context. Later sections cover cross-cultural instructional strategies, leadership and administration beyond borders, evaluation and assessment in cross-cultural contexts, and emerging trends in blending learning and technology.
