Abstract

The LVAIC-Teagle “Hybrid Learning and the Residential Liberal Arts Experience” project aims to support cross-campus teams of interested faculty in implementing new hybrid courses, revising courses or modules to have hybrid components, and/or generating new teaching materials to share in a hybrid fashion. Based on our three years of experience leading cohorts of faculty we will identify our triumphs and challenges with technology, faculty support structures, and the very concept of collaboration on multiple levels: for students, faculty, campus administration, and consortial leadership.

Description

The LVAIC-Teagle “Hybrid Learning and the Residential Liberal Arts Experience” project aims to support cross-campus teams of interested faculty in implementing new hybrid courses, revising courses or modules to have hybrid components, and/or generating new teaching materials to share in a hybrid fashion. Based on our three years of experience leading cohorts of faculty we will identify our triumphs and challenges with technology, faculty support structures, and the very concept of collaboration on multiple levels: for students, faculty, campus administration, and consortial leadership.

With the support of our chief academic officers, our consortial instructional technology and design staff worked with us closely to troubleshoot the myriad obstacles to connecting campuses through varied LMSs, lack of a federated ID system, and challenges in software purchases and support. And our IT staff on campuses helped build technology skills in our faculty so we could focus on project leadership to successful implementation.

Our faculty teams moved “at the speed of collaboration,” which generally was a slow pace since we hadn’t initially considered how to support the social dynamics of teams. We have observed an evolution of the nature of “collaboration” through the course of the project, beginning with working in parallel through a spectrum leading to more interactive development. Our faculty connect across campuses, cooperate to solve mutually interesting problems, coordinate their work, and finally collaborate in a true sense. The most sustainable and successful projects advanced through all four stages. Faculty team members will relate their experiences (1) in creating chemistry lab video modules and (2) sharing an hybrid introductory course in marketing science followed by teaching parallel courses with community-based learning projects.
