This presentation and paper shares findings of a four-year study into the preparation of pre-service teachers for work in online and blended learning environments. Starting with interviews from practicing online teachers, the study investigates the impact of a pre-service course in blended learning on subsequent teaching practices. The study follows pre-service teachers into the field to see the impact of their university work on actual practice.

Samples of the student work will be shared as well as lessons learned. This presentation will share actual practice, looking at how an understanding of instructional design and delivery impact education – especially when technology is used seamlessly.

The general importance of this study rests in an understanding of how the intentional design and planning to support rich and innovative blended learning experiences for a range of learners – K-12 to post secondary.
