DESCRIPTION OF A HYBRID COURSE: 51% of hybrid course instruction occurs in the classroom and 49% online. This course will require you to read, write, and test outside of the classroom. Class time will be spent on discussion of the assigned readings. Each student will: 1) check the website daily, 2) have read the assigned materials and 3) be prepared to discuss course content in class. You will also be required to submit your papers and complete your quizzes online—outside of class meetings. If you struggle to keep up with assigned readings or struggle to understand the material in the text book in traditional courses, you will struggle in this class. Hybrid courses require students to learn independently and be self-disciplined. Be forewarned that Hybrid courses are not the best form of course delivery for all learners. Any student, who is not comfortable with online course delivery or independent study, should not enroll for this course. REQUIRED MATERIALS: TEXT : Development Across the Life Span (2008) by Robert S. Feldman, Pearson Prentice Hall, 5 th ed. ISBN: 978-0-136- 01610-6. Given that about half of the course is delivered online, you must have a textbook to succeed in this course—no exceptions. A student of this institution is not under any obligation to purchase a textbook from a university-affiliated bookstore. The same textbook may also be purchased from an independent retailer, including an online retailer. INTERNET ACCESS : You must have a computer with reliable high speed internet access to complete this course. Failure to submit an assignment by the given due date will result in a zero on that assignment. Late assignments will not be accepted because of unreliable internet access. COMPUTER SOFTWARE : You will need Microsoft Office applications (Word, Power Point, and Excel) to open the course materials and submit your assignments. Any assignments that are not submitted in Microsoft Word will not be graded and students will receive a zero on those assignments. *Reminder: If you do not have a computer at home with the necessary software or high speed internet access, use the computers available to you on campus.
