"The basis of How to Design and Teach a Hybrid Course
is the notion that students learn best by doing, by experiencing, and then by reflecting on their experiences. Caulfield does a good job discussing the ways in which hybrid course design provides the theor4etical and pedagogical framework for such active, reflective learning. For the busy scholar, such a course will require a good deal of planning and designing time, but the reward of increased student learning will offset the initial investment."
"This is a guide for all who teach, and especially for those who have chosen to teach in a hybrid learning format."
"Offers guidance on teaching courses characterized by a reduction in the "face time" of the classroom, and the addition of online and experiential learning."
"A significant accomplishment. Jay Caulfield's experience as a teacher and faculty developer, and researcher in hybrid learning, is evident in the way she has made this material relevant for a broad audience."
“Dr. Caulfield’s book on how to design and teach a hybrid course offers necessary and valuable information to faculty and students alike. Moreover, her convergence of theory, experience, and application will definitely advance the current work in the field of designing and teaching hybrid courses.”
“This book will be a valuable resource for faculty in higher education who are planning, designing, teaching, and evaluating a hybrid course. Jay Caulfield combines interview data from experienced hybrid teachers with an extensive literature review to provide practical tips and guidelines for creating a successful hybrid teaching and learning experience.”
“Teaching a hybrid course well demands careful planning. This book provides excellent guidance on how to do that planning.”
“Dr. Caulfield has a great deal of experience with hybrid teaching methods and she has studied and worked with some of the leading figures in the hybrid movement. She effectively uses her experience and the experience of others who have both scholarly and practical knowledge of hybrid teaching methods to present a very readable and helpful account of the factors that can make hybrid teaching an engaging and effective learning experience for students from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines. The book will be very helpful to instructors who have some experience with hybrid instruction as well as those who may be thinking of trying this form of teaching for the first time."
“I’ve kept abreast as best I can on the burgeoning literature on hybrid (or blended, in the UW-Milwaukee lexicon) teaching, so I feel comfortable in saying that the book you now hold in your hands is well worth your time: it’s a book that I believe to be basic to any instructor’s appreciation of the full value of blended teaching and learning.”
