Hybrid courses couple technology with innovative teaching practices to increase flexibility and engagement. Hybrids transform one or more face-to-face sessions into online experiences, reducing physical seat time without diminishing educational outcomes.
Because hybrid courses require significant re-thinking of teaching practices and understanding of new technology, we’re offering the Hybrid Boot Camp as a two-week development experience.
Faculty who join the Hybrid Boot Camp will explore new ways of teaching and learn to use relevant technology to foster engagement. You’ll walk away with your own hybrid design strategy and a prototype lesson that can serve as a template for the rest of the course. Stipends of up to $1800 may be available to faculty who complete the Hybrid Boot Camp. Stipends apply to only one course regardless of the number of people who work on them. Adjuncts require department approval to participate in the workshop series and receive a stipend.
HTI participants will meet in a workshop setting for four sessions. Each workshop session runs three hours. The schedule is as follows:
Workshops: May 20 – 23
Collaboration: May 24-31
