Abstract

This paper examines a hybrid course design model implemented at the University of Louisiana at Monroe in 2004. The course design was chosen for an introductory education course as a means of: 1) creating an unconventional, creative learning environment that utilizes technological tools; 2) providing flexibility in terms of in-class contact hours, thereby affording students the opportunity to complete 20 hours of field work; and 3) fostering the development of community through online activities that demand both personal reflections and peer-to-peer interaction. The discussion focuses on the pedagogical foundations of the model, opportunities and challenges specific to the model, and the indications regarding the impact of the design on community-building.
