My name is Jennifer Southcombe and currently hold two wonderful roles in the Black Gold Regional School District (AB) - Outreach Science Teacher and Instructional Designer. I have taught in rural, urban, outreach and virtual schools and as a result, blended learning seems to me the most natural and logical teaching environment. Before I commit hours upon hours of my free time (now that my Master of Education is complete!) to blending my courses, I wanted to see if the research supports my efforts. This website is one way in which I can disseminate the findings of the paper I wrote for my final Master course with Memorial University.
