This practical handbook for designing and teaching hybrid or blended courses focuses on outcomes-based practice. It reflects the author's experience of having taught over 70 hybrid courses, and having worked for three years in the Learning Technology Center at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, a center that is recognized as a leader in the field of hybrid course design.

Jay Caulfield defines hybrid courses as ones where not only is face time replaced to varying degrees by online learning, but also by experiential learning that takes place in the community or within an organization with or without the presence of a teacher; and as a pedagogy that places the primary responsibility of learning on the learner, with the teacher's primary role being to create opportunities and environments that foster independent and collaborative student learning.

Starting with a brief review of the relevant theory - such as andragogy, inquiry-based learning, experiential learning and theories that specifically relate to distance education - she addresses the practicalities of planning a hybrid course, taking into account class characteristics such as size, demographics, subject matter, learning outcomes, and time available. She offers criteria for determining the appropriate mix of face-to-face, online, and experiential components for a course, and guidance on creating social presence online.

The section on designing and teaching in the hybrid environment covers such key elements as promoting and managing discussion, using small groups, creating opportunities for student feedback, and ensuring that students' learning expectations are met.

A concluding section of interviews with students and teachers offers a rich vein of tips and ideas.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I've kept abreast as best I can on the burgeoning literature on hybrid (or blended, in the UW-Milwaukee lexicon) teaching, so I feel comfortable in saying that the book you now hold in your hands is well worth your time: it's a book that I believe to be basic to any instructor's appreciation of the full value of blended teaching and learning."--Alan Aycock, Professor of Anthropology and Acting Director
"The basis of How to Design and Teach a Hybrid Course is the notion that students learn best by doing, by experiencing, and then by reflecting on their experiences. Caulfield does a good job discussing the ways in which hybrid course design provides the theor4etical and pedagogical framework for such active, reflective learning. For the busy scholar, such a course will require a good deal of planning and designing time, but the reward of increased student learning will offset the initial investment."-- (07/17/2013)
