Faculty Identify Effective Hybrid Teaching Practices

Weatherford Hall and autumn foliageIn Oct. 2016, the Center for Teaching and Learning surveyed OSU Corvallis and Cascades faculty to identify effective hybrid teaching practices from the instructor viewpoint. There was significant consensus among the 28 respondents from 7 OSU colleges. More than 3/4 of the instructors that used each of the following 11 practices rated these practices as “very effective” or “extremely effective”:

  1. Student-to-student interaction in both classroom and online environments
  2. Lectures of less than 15 minutes interspersed with other class activities
  3. Prompt and specific feedback given on assessments (e.g., quizzes, papers, projects)
  4. Real-world applications to connect theory to practice
  5. Active learning (e.g., think-pair-share, problem-solving exercises, group work)
  6. Group activities that have both an in-class and out-of-class component
  7. Learning activities outside of class prepare students to participate in class meetings
  8. Online content/learning activities referred to during face-to-face meetings to reinforce
  9. Student-to-instructor interaction in both the classroom and online environments
  10. Integration between classroom and online learning environments
  11. Classroom discussions
