In the Handbook of Blended Shore Education, educators and trainers critically examine their experience with blended shore programming and derive recommendations for good practices from such reflection and analysis. A group of internationally renowned authors raise vital questions about the export of education as a commodity wherein education maintains a purely instrumental value. It introduces an interdependent "next level" in blended shore education that can be achieved when the partner countries reach a transformation point where both benefit from examined values and the time and costs invested in the program. With that, this important book proffers a paradigm of good practices for blended shore programs that goes beyond delineating so-termed best practices.The recommendations support a professional practice of international adult education that is clearly rooted in an examined praxis, and are useful for program planners, practitioners, and chief learning officers in public and private education endeavors from the grass roots to the boardroom. With a backdrop of non-formal education; higher education; corporate training; workforce development; and basic education program settings, the Handbook of Blended Shore Education, examines what worked and what didn't work and brings the lessons learned to today's program administrators, CLOs, trainers, teachers, and community workers.
