Developing and Teaching An Online/In-Class Hybrid: A Demonstration


  • Denise Potosky


In a hybrid course, some class meetings are held online, and some class meetings are conducted in-person in the classroom. Although hybrid courses appear to capture the best of both real and virtual worlds, the development of a high quality hybrid course and the decision processes involved in conducting one effectively requires consideration of factors that are not usually issues for in-person courses and that are not necessarily present in courses taught entirely online. The purpose of this demonstration is to present key considerations for developing hybrid courses and to demonstrate ways to build instructor competence with preparing and teaching using a hybrid format. A summary of the content for each of these sections is provided below, and these lists will be provided to session attendees as handouts.
