I am creating a hybrid course for BA211 Financial Accounting. This course is an entry level course for students interested in applying to the College of Business. Many times it is the first business course an OSU student takes. The students are usually very young and not interested in accounting. Many of them to not realize the importance of accounting to the business environment. Thus one of my goals each term is to encourage the students and demonstrate not only the course content but the importance of the course content to their business careers. The class size can range from 60-120 but the section I am working on currently is 120+ students.
My intention is to utilize technology for learning objective taped lectures, weekly pre and post comprehension quizzes (based on the learning objectives for the week) and practice homework problems. My intention is to use the face to face time to work problems, touch on topics the majority of the class missed on the pre-test and possibly working in a team teaching/peer assistance environment. Thought this makes me nervous because it is different.
