CA CUE eL Sig New Learning Models Work Online and blended learning models are at an early stage, and many important questions require further research and development. Answering these questions will require that stakeholders across the field share an ambitious vision of online and blended learning’s potential, understand where the field is today relative to that potential, and innovate rapidly in collaboration with one another on critical open questions.
CA CUE eL Sig As part of iNACOL’s Strategic Plan, we want to: Create the conditions required to develop a broader set of effective blended and online learning models by: Building a compelling vision of the field’s potential and the suite of learning models, courses, and curriculum necessary to build college- and career-readiness for all students Conducting research to understand the field’s progress relative to the vision and identify the key gaps in knowledge and practices that remain Disseminating what is known (e.g., Promising Practices) via website, reports, webinars, conference presentations, and other iNACOL networks Building commitment among funders and providers to channel their innovation efforts toward addressing key gaps so that the field can more rapidly achieve the destination we seek
