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 in this course.
