This paper presents background information, recent research findings, and recommended next steps for a government sponsored province-wide blended teacher professional learning project called Learning Connections. Online surveys and in depth interviews were used to determine the nature of teacher participation in the online community and face-to-face learning and the impact that this blended approach had on teacher professional growth and reported student outcomes. Findings and recommendations from the most current evaluation of the project are presented in light of current understandings of the advantages of blended PD and how it is best implemented. Our analysis of process and outcome data can provide guidance to those researching or implementing similar projects.
