|Designing hybrid courses is Thursday|
Distance education is a great way to serve students who can’t come to class in person, and may be the key to the future of many programs at UND. But what do we do about our on-campus students? Do they have to become distance students and lose the benefit of face-to-face instruction? Will we have to create two sections of our existing courses to serve both populations? What if we could find a way to provide the same educational experiences for both distance and on-campus students?
All UND faculty are invited and encouraged to attend the upcoming Senate Continuing Education Committee-sponsored Discovery Series event, “Designing Hybrid Courses,” from noon to 2 p.m. Thursday, March 5, in the River Valley Room, Memorial Union. Faculty will demonstrate how they have implemented hybrid-blended learning modes that serve students on and off-campus while preserving the power of face-to-face instruction. A question and answer session will follow the presentations.
No registration is required, but to reserve a box lunch, call 777-3231 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by noon Monday, March 2.
For more information about the session itself, contact Richard Van Eck at email@example.com, or 777-3574.
