Vision of Learning in changing world: Seeking academic credentials via blended learning mode


The qualitative research aims to highlight the impact of blended learning on mid-career students representing Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. The distinctive aspect of the study is selected mid-career students from three developing countries engaged in mixed mode learning i.e. online/distance learning cum face-to-face modules to complete their master degree program from Institute of Education (IOE) University of London.


The paper presents participants’ experiences using mixed mode of learning. Their motivation, their perceptions, experiences to interact with students at the university, rapport with faculty members without having face-to-face meetings with them.


 On the other hands, paper also discusses the issues and quality of blended program as none of them had any prior online learning experience. Despite several hurdles in online program, scholars marked this master program as one of milestone in their lives as it enables them to witness the similarities and difference i.e. realities between developing and developed world. The master degree program enables scholars not only broaden their learning horizons but also expand their understanding of education in international context.

Hi Rozina, 

This proposal seems best suited for teachers, rather than school administrators. I would recommend using this proposal for the Learning Revolution Conference that will be held virtually April 24th and 25th, which is explicitly focused on learning.  Please find more information here:


When I wrote students, I meant teachers actually


This event is for school administrators and leadership, rather than teachers.  Your proposal will be better suited in an online event for teachers.  Thanks!
