A hybrid course is much more than just an online course with a face-to-face class session thrown in for good measure – or vice versa. The design process involves asking, “What is the best way for students to interact with course content, construct knowledge, engage in critical thinking and problem solving?” Selecting appropriate modalities for various course components is key to success. Andrea Cortinois from the Dalla Lana School of Public Health will share his experiences in design and implementation of two hybrid courses: PHS100 – Grand Opportunities in Global Health (undergraduate) and CHL5700 – Global Public Health (graduate). Instructors who are considering application for the new Online Undergraduate Course Initiative (OUCI) funding option for hybrid course redesign may find this session particularly helpful.
