The 8th Edition of the IDEAL Distance Education and Blended Learning Handbook provides guidance on setting up distance education, blended learning, and hyflex courses in adult education programs. The organization of the Handbook chapters reflects important programmatic considerations, including: recruitment, screening, orientation, instruction, and assessment. The guidance provided and reflection required in each chapter support the development of practical plans for distance and blended education implementation. The end goal for readers of the Handbook is crafting a distance or blended education program planning document. This edition builds on lessons learned from innovations developed in response to COVID-19 school closures, adds information about hyflex course creation and implementation, and includes insights about attending to equity in distance education programming.
