Prof. of Art, College Of The Arts Core Coordinator Dr. Linda Hightower, Professor of Art, Department Chair Natasha Lovelace, Asst. Professor of Art, Department of University Studies

Slide2: 

Hybrid Courses: The Cons of Online Learning Some learning techniques require interactive activities: • lab activities (haptic learning styles) • demonstrations • group presentations • class critiques • spontaneous “teaching moments”

Slide3: 

Hybrid Courses: The Cons of Online Learning Some learning techniques require interactive activities: • instantaneous q & a, group discussions, feedback • personal insights during lectures • visual & auditory interplay with speaker and audience • live performances & guest lectures

Slide4: 

Further Cons of Online Learning: • Learning Style Limitations • Class Size Limitations • Managerial Time Increased (email, discussions, updates, content management, technology problems, learning curve for faculty and students) • Papers, quizzes & tests require more faculty time Essential: • Administrative Support • Technology Support

Slide5: 

Pros of Online Learning: that can & can not be met in Hybrid Courses Online Courses: • Students can often work at their own pace • Work and personal schedules can be prioritized • Class space is relieved Student Responder Pads: • Saves money for xerox copies • Tests and quizzes are graded electronically Online Website: • Information is stored & available 24 hours a day (saves money for text &/or xerox copies) • Students can monitor their own progress • Email, announcements, & discussions facilitated

Slide6: 

Help for Hybrid Courses: Responder Pads in the Classroom: Pros & Cons Is there a remote control that can: • save money for text and xerox copies • grade tests & quizzes electronically, • take attendance, • tally surveys, • provide instant feedback & study guides, and • encourage group discussions (even in large classes)?

Slide7: 

What are the PROS that we have experienced in classes of 20 &100 students? • Saves instructor grading time & class time • Saves department money: Paperless option • Ability to generate individualized study guides • Receive feedback from quiet students • Ability to call on random students by name • Ability to manipulate assessment methods for each question • Ability to assess reading comprehension & attendance instantaneously • Fosters brainstorming, discussions, critical thinking, & critiques • Ability to quiz during PowerPoint lectures • Students love it

Slide8: 

How does it work? 1. Instructor writes questions & answers in multiple choice, true/false, yes/no, or subjective question (not for credit) format. Images can be included in questions, answers, or both. Questions can also be given orally in a spontaneous method during a PowerPoint presentation. 2. Each student in the classroom sends their response to a receiver through their remote pad. Assessments can be teacher managed, which allows time for discussion & questions. They can also be student managed, allowing students to move at their own pace. 3. Answers are scored electronically. Faculty can download results in Excel spreadsheets, or print & enter into their regular grade book or website gradebook manually.

What are the CONS that we have experienced in classes of 20 &100 students? • Initial learning curve (our company offered excellent technical support service, on-line training & manuals) • Student expense: purchase & registration fee (both of these vary with the company) • Difficulty with receivers, software, and response pads (again, our company offered excellent support service) • Cheating possibilities (radio frequency pads eliminate this, as do Student Managed questions with multiple tests) • Faculty are resistant to technology * Please give any suggestions you may have to resolve these issues in the questionnaire on the table.

Slide24: 

Help for Hybrid Courses: Online Website: Pros Online Website software can: • save money for text and xerox copies • grade tests & quizzes electronically (textbook support software) • allows students to take tests & quizzes at own pace (within instructor deadlines) • store information that is available 24 hours a day • allow students to monitor their progress (gradebook) • allow students to move ahead (optional) • facilitate email, announcements, and discussions • save class time Is it for you?
