Program Overview

As aligned with implementation of the Academic Strategic Plan, the Hybrid Instruction Project provides instruction and support to five faculty who wish to convert a class to hybrid instruction at Texas Woman’s University. A hybrid course is one in which a majority (more than 50% but less than 85%) of the planned instruction occurs when the students and instructor(s) are not in the same place.

The following chart is intended to help in determining the range of face-to-face (F2F) and online (electronic) time required for a course to qualify as a hybrid course.

Eligibility

Participation in the Hybrid Instruction Project is limited to faculty (full- and part-time; tenure-track and non-tenure-track). Faculty must be listed as the instructor of record and be able to designate a 3-hour face-to-face or fully online course for conversion to hybrid delivery and to redesign course materials for delivery during the Fall 2014, Spring 2015 or Summer 2015 semesters. Courses with current hybrid status are not eligible. Five participants will be chosen; and each participant will receive a $2,500 stipend upon fulfillment of project requirements.
