Cultivating Curiosity: Integrating Hybrid Teaching in Courses in Human Behavior in the Social Environment
Rodriguez-Keyes, Elizabeth; Schneider, Dana A.
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v33 n3 p227-238 2013
This study illustrates an experience of implementing a hybrid model for teaching human behavior in the social environment in an urban university setting. Developing a hybrid model in a BSW program arose out of a desire to reach students in a different way. Designed to promote curiosity and active learning, this particular hybrid model has students engage in weekly online activities between their weekly on-ground classes. This article reviews key pedagogical concerns and presents preliminary findings, including student feedback, instructor observations, and strategies for faculty interested in developing such courses.
