Conventional designs of educational programs are usually based on implicit instruc‐ tional design approaches that look equally at all learners. However, research indicates that learning is a complex activity involving a number of different aspects. Using tech‐ nology to deliver and support learning adds another layer of complexity. In a rapidly changing environment a template to map the implementation of blended learning is proposed to contribute to the ongoing debate in higher education in implementing blended learning approaches. In a challenging economic environment, some of the key strategic leadership challenges that institutions must address are articulated. Much of the research into deploying e-learning initiatives suggests that it is a complex undertaking and that educational institutions are at various stages in the develop‐ ment and deployment of technology-facilitated initiatives. A number of key leader‐ ship challenges are outlined that academic leaders must address in delivering the curriculum using technology. A proposed framework for deploying blended learning coupled with a template for educational managers to embrace in their strategic de‐ ployment of technology in delivering the curriculum is presented.
