This course was formerly called Online Extended Teaching.
A hybrid course combines face-to-face instruction and Web-or computer-based learning. Common features of hybrid courses will be explored, including the delivery of the syllabus, effective online lectures, discussions and presentations through message boards, e-mail and chat, and on-line assessments. By taking advantage of online-extended instruction, less in-class time can be spent on mundane tasks, and more time can be spent on collaborative, flexible and meaningful activities that incorporate all student learning styles.
Highlights: Teachers determine what aspects of their course are best suited to presentation online, create new approaches to communicating with students and create active learning experiences for students. Using computer-based technologies, instructors use the hybrid model to redesign some lecture or lab content into new online learning activities, such as case studies, tutorials, self-testing exercises, simulations, and online group collaborations.
This series is appropriate for Teachers, Curriculum Specialists and Administrators.
