This presentation addresses the use of the Community of Inquiry framework (Garrison et al., 2000, 2001) employed as the structure for the design of a blended learning course on blended learning for faculty at a large technical university in Sweden. The overall aim of the course is to provide faculty with the opportunity to design and implement blended or online course components in their undergraduate and graduate level courses. The course covers both theory and the application of online and blended teaching strategies in higher education. The theoretical part of the course is founded in the Community of Inquiry framework for blended learning presented in Vaughan et al. (2013). The practical part of the course consists of participants designing modules for blended learning delivery implemented in their own courses.

This presentation will cover the faculty response to this PD course; provide opportunity to review, discuss and critique principles of blended teaching in higher education as expressed by the model used; examine teaching issues and identify intervention strategies using ICTs; and consider the impact of disciplinary differences as expressed by faculty in the course.
