Hybrid works at OSU. Eighty-three different courses in 9 OSU colleges have been offered in a hybrid P1040208-BannersLINCPlaza-22Sep15format on the Corvallis campus during the past three years. The 2014-2015 academic year saw a 24% annual increase in the number of hybrid course sections and 5,390 students enrolled in hybrid courses. A hybrid (“blended”) course by definition includes both regularly scheduled, on-site classroom meetings and major online learning activity that replaces regularly scheduled class meeting time.

The Center for Teaching and Learning is offering $2,500 in professional development funds and course development support to faculty to participate in the winter 2016 Hybrid Faculty Learning Community and redesign established Corvallis campus courses as hybrid courses. Instructors and tenured/tenure-track faculty and instructors with at least 2 years of teaching at OSU are eligible to participate.

See the Request for Proposals to learn how to apply; proposals are due Nov. 1, 2015. Join the Center for Teaching and Learning in advancing teaching excellence at OSU!
