This workshop encompasses techniques that can help transform traditional format courses into hybrid format courses. The presenter will demonstrate how Web 2.0 tools implemented via hybrid course activities can achieve student learning outcomes as well as assess student learning.

Specific Web 2.0 tools that will be demonstrated include Blogger and Wikis. Via Blogger, creation of ePortfolios to assess student learning outcomes will be explained. Web 2.0 tools shared in this workshop are free and available to the population. The speaker will explore the numerous practical applications of these already existing tools.

The handouts will provide each participant with the information needed to create a blogger and wiki account as well as details on what students should include in their ePortfolios. Participants will also have the opportunity to reflect on the workshop and apply concepts shared to currently existing courses.

Participants will be provided a PowerPoint overview of Web 2.0 as well as an online Hybrid Format Implementation Manual. Additionally, participants will be presented a curriculum development strategy and engage in activities.

Participants will learn to:
  • Explore Web 2.0 and understand the rationale for integrating it into the curriculum, such as engaging students and utilizing free internet tools.
  • Review the concept and characteristics of a hybrid course and how Web 2.0 can support it.
