In February, the Office of Distance Learning issued a request for hybrid course design proposals. Two types of course design proposals were solicited:

  • Level A awards were for the creation of new hybrid courses.
  • Level B awards were for the significant improvement of an existing hybrid course design.

The following proposals were selected by a committee to receive course design awards.

Level A - New Hybrid Courses

  • ARCH 521 (Architectural History & Theory) -- Sarah Young
  • MGMT 465 (Advanced Human Resources Seminar) -- Joshua Bendickson
  • POLS 390 (Crime & Pop Culture) -- McKinzie Hall
  • SPED 391 (Foundations of Inclusive Education) -- Keita Wilson

Level B - Significant Improvements to Existing Hybrid Courses

  • EDFL 201 (Principles of Teaching, Learning, Growth) -- Bertha Myers
  • KNES 230 (Prevention and Care of Athletic Injuries) -- Toby Dore

Thanks to all who participated and congratulations to the award winners!

In order to increase the number of strategic hybrid course offerings, the Office of Distance Learning is making a significant investment in this initiative by offering a limited number of course design awards. Hybrid courses are delivered at least 50% online, with the remainder of course meetings delivered face to face. Hybrid courses bring students together only where/when needed, allowing them to engage in asynchronous (anytime / anywhere) learning otherwise. Hybrid instructors typically have a substantial portion of the content and learner engagement delivered online using discussion forums and other electronic collaboration formats to engage students with the content, other students, and the instructor.
