Abstract

This qualitative study focused on the use of blended instruction as a method for teaching Family and Consumer Sciences Education (FCS). Blended instruction uses the best features of face-to-face and online instruction to create a rich learning environment. The study employed a descriptive case format to explore the perceptions of six FCS instructors and eight secondary FCS students who were engaged in the process of utilizing or learning how to use a blended instruction format.
