Sažetak
In this paper we would like to present a case study about one bottom-up approach in creating the strategy and action plan on implementing blended learning at one higher education institution in Croatia and implications it has on the access and retention of students from equity groups. In previous researches the target groups were identified, and the next step was to investigate the specific needs for those groups of students, focusing on creating an effective learning environment. Taking the evidence-informed approach, institutional experts, management and staff developed a strategic framework, covering ICT support, e-learning system and curriculum development to meet the specific needs of these target groups. One of the very important goals of mainstreaming widening participation at the Faculty of Organization and Informatics is to create an effective learning environment for all students. E-learning is recognized as an important tool in making learning and education more accessible to all students at the Faculty of Organization and Informatics. The FOI’s Strategy for E-learning contributes to this objective and since FOI is one of the leading faculties in the implementation of e-learning at the University of Zagreb, FOI’s approach to e-learning is exemplary within the institution, and it has been taken into account when University of Zageb Strategy was being developed and implemented.
