Transcript of Intermediate-level Hybrid Chinese Language Class Model

Intermediate-level Hybrid Chinese Language Class Model
Model Overview
Learning Tasks & Online Materials
Learning Outcomes
Model Strengths & Weaknesses
Evolution of the Model
General Suggestions
Theoretical framework (more than input & output): http://tinyurl.com/hybridchinese ;
We are teaching a digital generation of students. But don't assume every student is technologically savvy;
A flipped class may attract more students than a hybrid class if there are no additional authentic communicative opportunities;
Hybrid learning is more applicable for intermediate or above students.
