Introduction to Blended/Hybrid Learning
Original Broadcast Date:  April 24, 2012

Blended or hybrid learning is receiving increased attention from faculty and administrators as a way to leverage the advantages of both face-to-face and online teaching. Teaching in a blended environment is not as easy as simply placing some material online, however. Faculty new to blended learning face a series of decisions that impact how they design, deliver, and assess the learning experience. This presentation will define the concept of blended or hybrid learning, display examples, and showcase faculty work. This session will also include tips on best practices when approaching the blending of a course. Participants will leave the session with a better understanding of the challenges and advantages of blended learning and have access to resources as they continue to explore this emerging modality
