Developing a Hybrid Module


The term 'hybrid' is used to describe a module in which half, or more, of the instruction is delivered online. Going beyond just hosting supplementary materials online, traditional face-to-face contact time is reduced and lecturers and students interact and collaborate online, optimising student engagement by taking advantage of all that the rich online environment has to offer.

This workshop will introduce the participants to the necessary steps in building a hybrid module, from planning through to piloting, with plenty of practical tips, hints and demos. Follow up workshops and/or consultancy sessions can be arranged serving the particular needs of those who attend.
