The Hybridization of Composition Teachers at the Two-Year College
How do you organize the flow of your course (i.e. your syllabus/daily schedule/coursework/ homework/etc.)?

How do you use technology in your teaching/classroom? What is its purpose?

When/where do you talk to your students most about their individual questions?
Perceptions? Misconceptions?
Supporting Research
7 Things You Should Know About Flipped Classrooms
First combine your syllabus/daily schedule...
The Process of BECOMING Hybrid
(In one BIG list!)
Doing so will get you...
with your lesson plans
for each of those class meetings.
What are some of the things these two say that reveal their initial perceptions of teaching a hybrid?
So...misconceptions of hybrid classes?
"Just throw some peer reviews
and readings online."
"It could also free up
our schedules."
"You've been teaching comp for 12 years; you know what you're doing."
"You just have to put the stuff
you don't like teaching online,
and you're good."

What now?!?!
Now you BECOME hybrid and blend your course.
...all of your course content.
Start making choices about the delivery of the content: F2F vs. Online
Start thinking in weekly chunks
"You can't think about it like that!"

"You can't do that anymore."

"I'm having a hard time getting my brain around doing it this way."

"Am I just not getting this because I am not thinking about it in this new way?"
Get a partner: split work, sounding board, & moral support

Find your resources: get a mentor, training, CTLE, etc.

“Sit in” on a colleague’s course (even outside your discipline)

Make a To Do List (especially important when making decisions on F2F vs. Online delivery)

Big chunks of time to work on building the course
Learning curve on technology
Revising & adapting as you go
Student correspondence, emails, confusion, their learning curve, etc.
Awareness that you still have an online "class time" commitment
Take Aways:
Models of Blended Course Design
The Hybrid Online Model: Good Practice
Strategies for Interaction in a Blended Course
Traditional day-to-day sequencing = DEAD
All content for the unit/module/"chunk" assigned at once
Students come to class with varying degrees of completion
What HAS to be F2F?
What do you WANT to be F2F?
Flipping your classroom
