Overcoming Common Misconceptions about Hybrid Course Design

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Over the past few years, hybrid learning models have gained popularity at all levels of education. As faculty interest in transitioning courses to a hybrid delivery model increases, faculty development and instructional design are becoming more important. Quality hybrid course design requires an understanding of true hybrid learning and proper support before the course even begins. This presentation will offer proven best practices and suggestions for both instructors and instructional designers looking to develop engaging hybrid courses.

Common misconceptions based on real hybrid course design experiences will be discussed throughout the presentation. For instance, the time needed for preparation prior to the class offering can be greater for hybrid courses. An effective hybrid course also requires a look at the course from a macro perspective long before the course begins.

Attendees will come away with a better understanding of hybrid learning principles and a heightened awareness of potential misconceptions relating to the design process. By walking through the various design transitions, attendees will get a glimpse of the hybrid course design process and mindset.
