For this workshop we are defining blended learning as a combination of face-to-face and online elements to support mentoring, teaching, and learning in both individual and group studies. Blended learning is a mode which allows mentors, instructors, and students both to develop relationships in person and to move beyond the constraints of physical distance in order to sustain communication, connection, and collaboration among all study participants--including mentors and students--and to develop communities of learning, exchange, and support.
