Hybrid Courses: Lessons Learned from Multi-Campus Instruction

Event Date & Time

  • December 9, 2021
    1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Event Description

Courses taught using information communication technologies (ICTs) that span campuses offer many benefits to students, instructors, and institutions, but broad questions remain on how technology and pedagogy may work together to maximize the student learning experience and promote equity and inclusion. In this session we examine case studies from regions around the world, reflect on pedagogical effectiveness within the associated context, and collaboratively examine best practices appropriate to Canadian universities.

We will share observation and evaluation methodologies for highlighting problem areas in course design and delivery of multi-campus and hybrid courses, as well as share practical tools for encouraging student equity, engagement, and inclusion. This session will be helpful to anyone who is contemplating delivering lecture content to local, in-class students with other students attending remotely through teleconference technologies and applications like Zoom.

We draw on SoTL literature through our case studies and synthesis. This session aligns well with a multi-campus training course currently under development which will soon be available to UBC instructors and the broader teaching community.
