Hybrid Teaching Academy


The purpose of a hybrid course is to take advantage of the best features of both face-to-face and online learning. In a Hybrid course, some traditional face-to-face 'seat time' has been replaced by online learning activities. This academy includes 3 modules that explore three major topics: fundamentals of hybrid teaching and learning, designing and facilitating effective hybrid learning activities, and assessment and feedback in the hybrid learning environment. The focus of this academy is not the technology, but the use of effective instructional techniques in the hybrid learning environment.


Join your peers as we explore ways to:

  • Evaluate and prepare course content for a hybrid design
  • Develop engaging and equitable experiences for both face-to-face and virtual delivery modes
  • Create aligned and equitable authentic assessments for both delivery modes


This academy is 100% asynchronous and fully self-paced. This means that participants will be working entirely on their own timeframe for completion - assignments do not have weekly due dates and there are no synchronous meetings.

Who Should Attend: This training is for instructors and faculty who are teaching hybrid/blended courses. Participants should be confident using Canvas.

Schedule: Self-Paced, from Monday, November 1, 2021 to Tuesday, November 1, 2022

Faculty should expect to spend approximately 9-12 hours completing this academy.
