This study examines how higher-order learning occurs in a blended environment, through the analysis of chat discussions, as a way of reflecting the dynamic relationship between cognitive presence and critical thinking in a community of inquiry. Findings suggest that individuals exercise higher-order thinking skills when achieving integration and resolution, the upper two stages of practical inquiry. The paper concludes that learning communities, which foster the development of critical thinking, can be created at a distance and improve the quality of an individual's higher-order thinking skills and educational experience.
