Hybrid courses are designed to replace at least 50% of face-to-face classroom time with effective, online activities that increase flexibility and promote active learning.
Hybrid Teaching Initiative
Because hybrid courses require significant re-thinking of teaching practices and understanding of new technology, we're offering the Hybrid Teaching Initiative workshop series during a two-week period.
These hands-on workshops will explore new ways of teaching, and provide training in the use of relevant technology. Faculty will walk away with their own strategy and a prototype lesson for a future hybrid version of their course.

The Hybrid Initiative consists of four sessions with two sessions per week.
Tuesday/Thursday from 9 am - 12 pm;
February 26, 28
March 5, 7
Faculty who attend all sessions and complete and submit a lesson prototype, framework, and a work-plan for a hybrid course that will be at least 50% online may be eligible to receive a stipend of up to $500 (if completed by the end of Fall 2013). Adjuncts require department approval to receive a stipend.
