Faculty Experiences in Higher Education Institutions Teaching Hybrid Courses
Calderon, Blanca I. Rodriguez
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
This qualitative phenomenological study investigated how professors perceive the effectiveness of hybrid courses at the university level. The study gathered data related to professor's experiences that could give insight about the factors encouraging the development of hybrid instruction in higher education. The targeted population consisted of ten professors at a higher education institution where they taught hybrid courses. To assess the effectiveness of the faculty experiences ten professors responded through interviews that were recorded. Although the study was limited in duration and scope the results clearly support earlier research on positive outcomes of faculty experiences with this modality. The study revealed that the majority of the participants in the study showed significant advances in the integration of hybrid modality of teaching in the curricula of their programs. Even with the limitations encountered the faculty showed enthusiasm, and a great motivation to get more involved in this type of teaching modality. The study findings show that if the institution provides the right environment, procuring equipment, improving technological infrastructure, consistently training faculty in this type of technology, continually updating the knowledge in this modality, the hybrid course offerings will be the rule rather than the exception.
