Abstract

In this case study I (Rick) use an argument-based approach to blended language program evaluation. The focus is on the program (or meso) level. My key area of interest was to discover the current state of blended learning after a year-long initiative to raise awareness of the approach across an English for Academic Purposes language program. As such, the evaluation sought to identify the perceived place of blended learning in the program, and the perceived issues regarding implementation and sustainability of blended learning at the program level. As with previous chapters, this was a pilot study that utilized the argument framework outlined in Chapter 2 and aimed to test its applicability.
