When Dr. Manyu Li transitioned to remote teaching in the spring, she decided to become certified to improve her students’ learning experience. She says she found the right tools to streamline her course prep and gained perspective on the importance of accessibility.
The Office of Distance Learning is excited to announce those selected as part of the Hybrid Course Design Challenge.
ULearn Certified faculty submitted a number of excellent proposals for courses that could be redesigned for hybrid delivery. For this initiative, the Office of Distance Learning selected the following courses and faculty:
- EDFL 106 - Introduction to Education, Bertha Myers.
- ENGL 357 - Advanced Business Writing, Sheri Lazare.
- IRED 320 - Tech in the Classroom, Dr. Douglas Williams & Aimee Barber.

- PSYC 455 - Human Psychological Development, Dr. Valanne MacGyvers.
Hybrid courses provide an active, learner-centered approach that fosters collaboration and caters to an array of learning styles.
Faculty will receive a 2,500 course design stipend for designing their hybrid courses, which will be offered by Fall 2020.
