Abstract

Sponsored by Teagle Foundation, cohorts of faculty members collaborated across six Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania private liberal arts colleges to develop and implement instructional materials/modules and cross-campus courses using hybrid-learning approaches. In this panel, participating faculty from two of four pilot projects discuss their experiences with hybrid learning, cross-campus collaboration, and new pedagogical possibilities for traditional students in online arenas. Attendees will hear about two shared hybrid/blended courses (Media and Society/Media Literacy and Media Industries) dedicated to helping students understand media structures and power, ideological messages in media, and develop awareness of the centrality of media in a democracy to become critical media consumers and producers in society. These courses used a shared learning management system (Moodle) with joint classroom experiences that included interactive lectures, videos, and shared research projects, course reading responses, discussion forums, and online presentations and developed Media Literacy Week, a cross-campus event in Fall 2015 held jointly on two campuses. Attendees will also learn about another cross-campus collaboration featuring community-based learning and research (CBLR), beginning with a new quantitative research course in Fall 2015 and linking two marketing research courses in Spring 2016. Students explored issues in primary data collection, data cleaning, and research question development for CBLR projects in the first course and produced video tutorials on IRB and research methods for use in the later courses. Students in marketing research courses collaborated across campuses using video-conferencing technologies, Canvas, and Google to critique and edit the data collection and analysis experiences.
