Hybrid Academy is a four-day workshop designed to prepare UTSA instructors to effectively plan, create, and teach a high-quality hybrid course. The workshop is structured to give participants the experience of a hybrid student in a condensed format on May 17th, 18th, 19th and 22nd, 2017. Content will be delivered face-to-face from 8 am to 12 pm and online in the afternoons and evenings. Attendance and participation in both components are essential to complete the workshop successfully.

Participants should plan on devoting eight hours per day to readings, course redesign activities, assignments, and active participation in the online portion of the workshop.

Attendees will be assigned a consultation team of experts to provide personalized guidance during the event as well as follow up with progress and assistance throughout the year. To ensure participants receive personal mentoring, limited seats are available.
