The primary difference between this class and any other class will be our meeting formats. One day our class will be a regular “face-to-face” (“f2f”) class, while our second weekly class will be a “virtual” class; your work will be done individually and collaboratively online. This means that you will not come to the physical classroom on those virtual days, and will have the option of completing the online assignment either in a computer lab or on your own computer sometime that day. The physical classroom will not be available to you on virtual days. We will be discussing the hybrid concept in class throughout the semester. Online assignments will be posted on the Blackboard discussion board throughout the semester. English 302B Course Objectives: 1.
