The Details

This seminar may be right for you if you:

  • want to learn how to enhance student engagement beyond the classroom
  • are interested in exploring the potential for personalized and flexible learning in large classes
  • are currently teaching with online resources and would like to learn how colleagues in other disciplines approach online learning?  

By leveraging both online and in-person experiences, hybrid instruction is increasingly used to promote personalized learning beyond the classroom to encourage more active participation during in-person instruction.   

In Spring 2018, APeL will launch a new program to support hybrid instruction. We guide instructors through a process that can be tailored to different disciplines and preferred teaching methods. Over eight weeks, participants will convert existing resources or create new hybrid instructional resources. By the end of the seminar, faculty will be prepared to implement hybrid instructional strategies and methods. 

HIT Format 

Up to 15 participants will meet for eight 1-hour sessions over the course of the semester. Meeting times will be tailored to available schedules. Participants are expected to attend all sessions. Upon completion, participants will be asked to share their resulting design or plan.
