Blending our traditional interactive classrooms with online environments can be challenging. In this session, we will share the experience of a professor at an institution where no formal training was provided, just some IT coaching. We will also discuss a professional development model that we have developed and used to train over 30 faculty and staff in blended course design, the Hybrid Course Design Institute (HCDI). We will share goals, objectives, and topics covered in the six-week program and offer pre- and postsurvey data from the first three cycles of the program.

OBJECTIVES: Understand what issues arise when converting a course from face-to-face to blended * Understand the limits of technology for conveying lecture material * Obtain a working definition of blended teaching and learning and better understand the growth of this model in higher ed * Better understand the complexity of blended course design
