This symposium session will highlight reasons for the recent emergence of blended as documented in the upcoming "Handbook of Blended Learning (HOBLe): Global Perspectives, Local Designs." The contributors to this symposium will highlight issues and trends within blended learning from a global point of view and then provide more specific information on one's own blended learning situation. Bascially, the HOBLe is a book about adult learning in the twenty-first century-illustrating dozens of learning options which combine aspects of face-to-face (FTF) instruction with online learning in both formal academic settings as well as the workplace. The stories, models, and examples embedded in the HOBLe should provide a means to reflect on one's learning options and help foster intelligent decisions regarding blended learning. Hopefully, the many personal stories and reflections included here can serve as guideposts to others making similar journeys into blended learning environments.
