Faculty Information for Online and Hybrid Learning
Faculty interested in teaching an online or hybrid course should be familiar with the SU Online Learning Policy. Instructional Design & Delivery supports faculty in the planning, development and delivery of online and hybrid courses and academic programs.
Commonly asked questions regarding the policy are:
Before teaching a hybrid or online course, do I have to go through professional development?
Yes, the policy states that "Faculty must demonstrate the pedagogical, instructional and technological expertise for teaching online courses. They are expected to take advantage of relevant faculty development programs as offered or supported by SU."
What is the difference between a web-enhanced and hybrid course?
Web-enhanced courses meet in the classroom during a normal course schedule. Course activities can occur online such as online discussions, group activities, assessments and/or assignments. No "seat time" is replaced by online activities. Flipped classrooms are typically web-enhanced courses.
Hybrid courses blends online and traditional classroom delivery and purposefully replaces face to face (F2F) classroom meetings with substantial online activities. The activities typically are similar to the online activities in a web-enhanced course but the depth and scope of those activities.
Faculty can contact the Instructional Design & Delivery office reagarding questions about online and hybrid learning at Salisbury University.
