Hybrid Learning as a Driver of Institutional Change: A Community of Practice Model

Wednesday, February 15 | 10:15AM–11:00AM | Houston Ballroom Foyer
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
Shifts in the higher education landscape drive institutions to adapt their organization, faculty, and instructional strategies to address the demands of stakeholders (e.g., legislative, students, faculty). Hybrid learning—in which instruction is moved online and the amount of time spent meeting face-to-face is reduced—is one response to these demands. This session will focus on hybrid-learning course development efforts that have transformed into a community of practice to advance the learning and teaching mission of the presenters' institution. Participants will engage in reflective exercises that draw on organization, faculty, and instructional development research.

Outcomes: Situate hybrid learning development at national, institutional, faculty, and instructional development levels *Compare and contrast the various approaches of participants' hybrid development programs *Review lessons learned based on our model
