We converted a 4 week conventional elective course: Radiology Clerkship into a hybrid course utilizing an online learning management system (LMS): the Pearson Learning Studio eCollege. Overall, students had positive feedback for the course, especially regarding its flexibility and ability for self-directed learning. Nonetheless, with the hybrid course in its infancy, there was also feedback for ways to improve organization, course structure, and lecture content to better suit online learning.
The hybrid (or blended) class model moves direct instruction out of the classroom by assigning course-content videos for homework. Rutgers University introduced its first hybrid mathematics course in the Spring 2015 semester. This study compared the hybrid section and one traditional format section taught by the same professor.
As the percentage of non-traditional students continues to rise, the need for institutions to assess their resources becomes critical to driving student outcomes. This session will identify how non-traditional students are using university resources in different ways and the barriers they face throughout the student life-cycle.
The presenters, "A faculty member and an instructional design/technology specialist," collaborated to design and develop a new hybrid course, Digital Technology and Disruptive Change, in the Digital Communication, Information, and Media minor (DCIM) in the School of Communication and Information at Rutgers University.
In "High Touch Hybrid Courses"-- Professors Mary Gatta and Kristina Baines (CUNY- Guttman Community College) will share their experiences teaching "high touch hybrid courses" in the social sciences. High Touch Hybrid courses incorporate experiential learning pedagogy into sociology and anthropology courses.
COHLIT supports Rutgers academic units University-wide in creating and delivering hybrid and fully online courses, and is heavily involved in both for-credit as well as non-credit online and hybrid education. Find out more.
