For the past couple of years I have been working with a team at the University of Calgary to do some research on a community-based Bachelor of Education program offered in a blended-learning format. This program is targeted specifically towards Albertans living in rural and remote areas.
This year, we had the honour of presenting some of our research results at the 2017 American Educational Research Association (AERA) annual conference.
Here are the details of the paper we presented:

We have uploaded an Open Access copy of our conference paper to the University of Calgary’s digital repository, called PRISM. You can download a copy of our paper from http://hdl.handle.net/1880/51973.
