Intro to Hybridization

Wednesday, September 28, 11am-12pm, NVC 14-266

Want to explore different ways you could adapt your course to a hybrid format? This workshop helps faculty appreciate the many ways a course can be developed to create a hybrid course that is a good experience for the students and faculty and is worthy of the topic. This workshop will present several hybrid course models and provide an overview of the basics of teaching a hybrid course including course structuring, assignment design, and assessment. During the workshop, faculty will have the opportunity to discuss how their courses could function in a hybrid model and will leave with a working knowledge of hybrid course models. To RSVP click here.
