(March 5, 2014) -- The Online Learning group at The University of Texas at San Antonio is soliciting applications for the upcoming Hybrid Academy, which will run May 14-19. The workshop is taught partly face-to-face (morning classroom sessions) and partly online (afternoons and evenings). The workshop maps to recommendations by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) for faculty professional development.
The Hybrid Academy is now in its fifth year and is recommended for faculty who are going to start teaching hybrid courses within the next year, according to Michael Anderson, director of online learning in the Office of Information Technology.
A hybrid course, as defined by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, is a "course in which a majority (more than 50 percent but less than 85 percent) of the planned instruction occurs when the students and instructor(s) are not in the same place." Hybrid courses allow the university to offer additional classes and provide alternative learning environments.
The Hybrid Academy features interactive sessions from UTSA as well as external experts. Participants should plan on devoting eight hours per day to readings, course redesign activities, assignments and active participation in the online portion of the course. Certificates will be awarded upon successful completion.
To ensure that each participant receives personal mentoring, the Hybrid Academy is limited to 12 participants. Participants must seek the approval from their department chair.
For more information and to apply to participate this year, visit the Hybrid Academy website.
