The Center for Teaching and Learning surveyed OSU Corvallis and Cascades campus faculty in Oct. 2016 to determine effective hybrid teaching practices from the perspective of instructors. Results: There was significant consensus among the 28 respondents from 7 OSU colleges. More than three-fourths of the instructors that used each of the following 11 practices rated these practices as “very effective” or “extremely effective”:
- Student-to-student interaction in both classroom and online environments
- Lectures of less than 15 minutes interspersed with other class activities
- Prompt and specific feedback given on assessments (e.g., quizzes, papers, projects)
- Real-world applications to connect theory to practice
- Active learning (e.g., think-pair-share, problem-solving exercises, group work)
- Group activities that have both an in-class and out-of-class component
- Learning activities outside of class prepare students to participate in class meetings
- Online content/learning activities referred to during face-to-face meetings to reinforce
- Student-to-instructor interaction in both the classroom and online environments
- Integration between classroom and online learning environments
- Classroom discussions
How many of these practices do you use in your teaching?
