Teaching Hybrid: What Works Well?

Red maple leaves and blue skyThe 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”:

  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

How many of these practices do you use in your teaching?

See Effective Hybrid Teaching Practices for a summary of the survey findings.
