Defining the nature of blended learning through its depiction in current research: Higher Education Research & Development: Vol 0, No 0

ABSTRACT
Blended learning has been a feature of higher education practice and research for almost two decades. This article takes stock of current blended learning research, contributing to the growing number of meta-analyses of higher education and blended learning research more generally, through a review of ninety-seven articles relating to blended learning in higher education published in fifteen journals between 2012 and mid-2017. The review focused on where and when the articles were published; their provenance, scale, scope; methodological approach; the broad research themes; and definition of blended learning used. The review shows that despite its ubiquity, blended learning’s definition is all-encompassing; its spread is global but research is dominated by key players; it is of technical interest; and its research is small-scale, individually focused, seeking to evidence the benefits of blended learning. The article concludes with recommendations of how higher education research could provide institutions with evidence to ensure their ‘best of blends’.

(PDF) Higher Education Learning Framework: An evidence-informed model for university learning

(PDF) Higher Education Learning Framework: An evidence-informed model for university learning | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Learning as a developmental process is the central consideration of effective higher education. Grounded on a synthesis of existing frameworks, literature, and research on the topic, the Higher Education Learning Framework (HELF) was informed by interviews with national and international experts in learning and higher education offering the latest thinking on university learning. A science of learning lens was applied during development, threading together the often-disparate thinking in education, neuroscience, and psychology, to offer a convergent framework on effective learning in higher education. This unprecedented approach to understanding learning in a tertiary context provides a robust framework that can broadly guide the higher education sector. (PDF) Higher Education Learning Framework: An evidence-informed model for university learning. Available from: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/328943978_Higher_Education_Learning_Framework_An_evidence-informed_model_for_university_learning [accessed Nov 16 2018].
