About the Presentation
Augsburg College is moving over 400 F2F courses to a hybrid model for the Fall 2013-2014 semester. Augsburg is making this bold move to increase student engagement and enhance learning opportunities for all weekend college undergraduate and all graduate and professional courses. The Hybrid delivery model will offer new opportunities to overcome the limitations of the current schedule, better enable compliance with federal credit guidelines, and increase student contact with the instructor, their fellow students, and with the course content.
Attendees will take away Augsburg’s experience of developing faculty professional development to accomplish the transition, its inclusion of library staff and resources into the new hybrid model, the extensive work plan of the IT academic services staff, and the attention to accessibility for all learners in the new model. Augsburg uses Moodle, Adobe Connect, VoiceThread and Qualtrics in its hybrid model.
