Moving toward a Hybrid Teacher Education Course: Supporting the Theory to Practice Challenge in Special Education
Jones, Phyllis; West, Elizabeth A.
Journal of Special Education Technology, v25 n2 p45-56 2010
The use of teacher education hybrid courses has become a growing and more visible phenomenon in the field of special education. This article describes a hybrid course development process that utilizes a seven-stage learning cycle model for course structure and design as a way to support the translation of evidence-based practices to the classroom and larger school community context. A case example is described where two cohorts of graduate special education students completed a hybrid course developed around this seven-stage model. This case presents a positive student perspective of the hybrid course structure and supports a reflection of application to practice.
