According to the University of Maryland Office of the Provost, a blended learning course combines both face-to-face interaction and online resources for a both individualized and collaborative learning experience. “Culture is changing. There is a growing recognition that it is a good idea to innovate our class structure, just as we innovate our research and all other things we do,” said Ben Bederson, Special Advisor to the Provost on Technology and Educational Transformation at the University of Maryland. According to Bederson, the University of Maryland chose to initiate blended leaning options for ten courses in 2011, an effort put forth by a group of faculty and administrators who saw the potential Blended Leaning offered, especially in contrast to more ineffective lectures.
