Where's the Remote? Upper-Level Math/Stats Hybrid Course Sharing for the Liberal Arts

Tuesday, January 30 | 11:45a.m. - 12:30p.m. CT | Preservation Hall Studio 9, Second Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
As one possible avenue to expanding curricular offerings for math and stats majors at small liberal arts institutions, partner schools in the Liberal Arts Consortium for Online Learning (LACOL) have been exploring ways to remotely share classes using hybrid/online delivery modes. Two faculty members at the forefront of this collaboration will describe their experiences in designing hybrid courses and teaching with a mix of digital pedagogies. We will emphasize how connections were made between students and faculty; how well local and remote students were able to engage the material; and the various challenges in coordinating course delivery across several campuses.

Outcomes: Consider a collaborative online/hybrid course sharing model as one strategy to enrich curricular offerings and promote faculty development for the liberal arts * Evaluate evidence concerning the effectiveness of various digital pedagogies that can be used to shape the student experience in hybrid classes for mathematics and statistics, and other subjects * Discuss the benefits and challenges of coordinating shared courses as a multi-campus network of small, residential liberal arts institutions
