Community of Inquiry Garrison and Vaughan 2008

Community of Inquiry
Blended learning, in the eyes of Garrison and Vaughan is not simply embedding educational technology into face-to-face instruction. Rather than suggesting “what and how” type of questions as Salmon did, they precisely introduce a holistic, reflective and self-sustainable Community of Inquiry Framework grounding on a strong educational theory.
It acts as a conceptual tool that helps the academics and blended learning practitioners who wish to evaluate and position the value of blended learning. If there is one point of criticism, it is that assessment - an important element of learning and teaching is not depicted in the framework.
