Latest faculty hybrid teaching and learning workshops began!

Our new fall 2011 hybrid workshop series began Friday December 9th with 10 faculty participating and who are looking to convert their in-person courses to hybrid. One instructor hopes to convert from fully online back to hybrid! We hope to accomplish several goals through these workshops that provide content that includes emphasis on educational philosophies, effective online pedagogy, and scaffolded project design for blended online and in-person teaching:

1. Designing the Syllabus as a means to Developing a Sense of Community: Participant buy-in to hybrid teaching and learning

2. Creating activities that support expected outcomes; activities that when completed, illustrate levels of student understanding of stated educational goals and objectives.

3. Setting Clear Expectations: (Workshop-Faculty and Faculty-Student) Provide support for using blackboard effectively, offering information such as participation guidelines, procedures, classroom/discussion board etiquette, support for group work etc.

4. Offering a Supportive and Reflective Teaching and Learning Environment- faculty will be able to voice concerns and work towards solutions in a small group setting.

5. Providing Access to Technology, Support & Resources to help faculty develop the knowledge of when to use materials, web 2.0 sites and software appropriately

Though we are meeting in a sequential order over a period of months its not too late to join us in the series. (though our offer of remuneration is no longer available).

Early reviews are in and Friday’s group seemed to benefit greatly from the collaboration! Contact me for details.

Middle school students and teachers were introduced to media and media literacy projects designed for active learning in real world contexts. For the past 5 years I have been an academic program developer, coach and workshop leader. I have significant expertise in course design, curriculum planning, online teaching, training, coaching & mentoring and major event logistics & execution.

My background in television and radio, teaching teachers in K-12 through Higher Education, professional life coaching, and yes, even my newly acquired professional chef skills brings depth to my latest position of Associate Director of Online Education at Lehman College. I am very excited to be among this group of professionals to take my understanding of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning to even greater heights.

  1. Hi Alyson and fellow hybrid classmates.
    I really enjoyed meeting everyone at our first workshop. It is great to exchange ideas with such a talented bunch.
    After having struggled to retro-fit an online course to hybrid, I have decided to go the traditional route and make my English 120 in-person course the hybrid. I have started the process and look forward to peer review once we get them posted.
