Explorations and Evolution within the Handbook of Research on K-12 Online and Blended Learning
Wednesday, March 4 1:45 PM-2:45 PM Location: Amazon H
Abstract: The Handbook of Research on K-12 Online and Blended Learning was released by ETC Press in late fall, 2014. It is an open access and freely available tool. The Handbook contains six sections of research, policy, and practice related to online and blended instruction, including a section that is focused on technology and teacher education. This panel will begin with an overview by the Handbook’s editors. It will then feature authors from the Handbook describing research, policy, and practice in their areas ranging from content focus to mentoring and from leadership to future technologies. The Handbook was created as an evolving collection of existing research; as such, the panel will conclude with a discussion of the 2015 version. This will include new authors, new research, and a continued focus on building the relationship between K-12 online/blended learning and teacher education.
