Abstract

In this study, we explore the design and delivery of a blended social studies teaching methods course to examine the elements of the blended design that pre-service teachers found most constructive. In focus groups at the completion of the course, pre-service teachers were asked to reflect on their experience in the blended course, identify the aspects they found most supportive, and consider what principles of blended learning they would implement in their future classrooms. Four overarching themes were identified from the analysis, which include: organization and structure, transparency and support, community and discourse, and personalized learning.
