Clark, T., Barbour, M. K., Bacsich, P., Ebert, J., Powell, A., & Ferdig, R. (2012, October). North American and international online and blended learning: What can programs learn from each other? A panel presentation at the annual Virtual School Symposium, New Orleans, LA. This panel session takes an international look at key policy and practice issues that need to be addressed in K-12 online and blended education. What can North American educators learn from international programs, which are mainly blended? Conversely, international K-12 educators want to know, what can we learn from North American programs, which are mainly online? The moderators asked chapter authors from around the world to help them respond to these questions through a forthcoming book.
