Abstract: Each blended learning (BL) context is unique, but also shares attributes and concerns with others. As people in each context strive to improve their own research and practice, they have developed various approaches to common BL issues that can be applied and adapted by others, regardless of location. Our findings suggest that BL researchers and practitioners across the world have more common experiences than particular ones and that, as each strives to improve his or her own teaching and context, new discoveries can be widely applicable. The current research describes a snapshot of the present state of blended learning. Conclusions are drawn from interviews with current blended learning researchers and practitioners (n = 12) focussed on BL around the world.

Keywords: international blended learning; collaboration; culture; hybrid learning.
