Managing Large-Enrollment Courses in Hybrid Instruction Mode
Khanna, Pooja
Higher Learning Research Communications, v6 n4 Dec 2016
This essay addresses the hitches and glitches in the hybrid instruction system of teaching and learning for large-enrollment courses. This new instructional methodology asks facilitators to redesign their entire traditional teaching and learning practices. The nature of subject to be taught via the hybrid mode further affects the success rate of the modules from the time of inception to launch to actual delivery and completion of the course. The entire process involves undoing the old habits and methodologies and instructors picking up new skills, along with the right motivation to take up the task. The course planning and delivery require a substantial commitment in terms of hours from the instructors catering to large-enrollment courses, along with pursuing their routine roles at the campuses. From the pupil's perspective, the response varies, as hybrid learning seeks self-discipline and time management skills from the learner. After the initial roadblocks, students enjoy hybrid learning if the course structure and instructions are simple and the course content flexible and varied. We will study the problems and possible solutions to the success of the hybrid teaching-learning system at each stage where large number of students enrolled for a specific course.
