[T.E.L.L.] The Hybrid Course: A new breed of animal?

[T.E.L.L.] The Hybrid Course: A new breed of animal?

The next T.E.L.L. session will be Tuesday March 27 12:00-1:00 pm PST. Join Gina Bennett, elearning specialist with the College of the Rockies for “The Hybrid Course: A new breed of animal?” Here’s a brief description of this upcoming webinar:

What exactly is a “hybrid course”? Is it the same as a “blended course”? Why do institutions and teachers decide to use a hybrid delivery, and why do students take such courses? In this session we’ll explore the what, where, when, and why of hybrid courses. Using the experience of BC educators, we’ll also hope to find out who’s working with hybrid approaches and benefit from their experience of what’s working and what’s challenging about being a hybrid. This session will be of interest to educators who have no experience with hybrid approaches; for educators who know a bit but need some hints on how to get started; and for experienced hybrid educators who are willing to share their secrets.
