The purpose of this paper is to describe the process and goals of the blended learning initiative that Portland State University began in the fall of 2006 and share the lessons and insights that we have gained from this experience. Portland State University planned and initiated a pilot project to test a process for course conversion (e.g., from a traditional classroom course to a blended course format). We will present the process for the blended course design and ho we developed a community of mutual support. Moreover, we will share both opportunities and challenges that we faced in implementing blended courses. We will discuss how the blended learning initiative can present the university with an opportunity to improve student learning and the effectiveness in delivering instruction. We will also discuss the challenges that need to be addressed when implementing blended learning from teaching, learning, and administrative perspectives and how we addressed such issues.
