Online and blended courses are increasingly prevalent in higher education settings, and there is pressure to incorporate these environments to serve a generation that prefers learning through experience or through interacting with learning tools. Challenges arise in assisting instructors in facilitating and designing blended learning environments that will provide effective learning for all students. This critical research publication delves into the importance of effective professional development for educators planning and teaching online or blended courses. It also establishes the benefits of technology-mediated learning environments over traditional learning methods. Highlighting topics such as online learning environments, active learning model, and educational development, this publication explores technology-based teaching methods in higher education. This book is for educators, educational administrators, academicians, researchers, and higher education professionals.
