12:30 PM to 2:00 PM - MUB 162: The University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law increased the amount of distance education credits a student could take in an ABA approved program. As the first law school to create a hybrid JD with a focus, we will discuss how we constructed a new blended learning environment without blueprints. In this workshop, we will discuss student benefits of a hybrid classroom, pedagogical challenges, strategies to create parity between the hybrid and residential programs, and the instructional design process. We will hear faculty testimony and view real hybrid classroom time to gain student and instructor perspective. We will discuss:Day-to-day of teaching a hybrid courseAsynchronous versus synchronous online instructionReducing faculty/student fatigue during residential periodsAssignments, grading, and academic successMarketing and assessing this programMoving forward Please bring computers and a specific course or program you would consider “hybridizing." Workshop facilitators will work with participants to help begin a design and develop a two-year vision map for a course or academic program, incorporating varying levels of distance education components.
