Finding Balance in Blended Learning: Teaching Large Lecture Courses in Hybrid Format


Published on

In this presentation, I try to make the case for using the term hybrid rather than blended or flipped to describe the combination of online learning with classroom instruction, especially as it applies to large lecture classes in higher education. I present a very simple model for thinking about how to achieve balance in a hybrid course, briefly describe my experiences in hybrid course development, provide some specific examples, and offer some suggestions for making the most of a hybrid course.
