Presentation Description

This panel will highlight the usage of hybrid courses in college-level teaching as a means of better engaging and challenging students at all levels utilizing innovative teaching formats and technologies. Students learn differently so it is our responsibility to challenge them in various fashions. The presenters will offer examples using hybrid technologies in political science, international affairs, and psychology courses. Hybrid courses increase information literacy among students by focusing on various and alternative methods of accessing, evaluating, and using proper sources of information including web-sites, peer-reviewed journal articles, scholarly sources, popular sources, blogs, and interactive journals, among others. Information literacy is a cornerstone of the aforementioned academic disciplines and hybrid courses only help develop the skill among our students.
