This study focuses on exploring blended learning in technology integration courses. Convergent parallel mixed methods design was applied in the study. Pre-service teachers enrolled in technology-integration courses in a large Midwestern university participated in surveys and interviews and provided insights about blended technology-integration course. Findings from the study revealed positive perspectives towards using blended learning approach to teach technology integration courses over the traditional face-to-face approach. Future research is needed to study students’ motivation in blended technology-integration courses. The study has implications for the higher education faculty, instructional designers and technology specialists.
