Research shows that during times of economic downturn in the United States, education funding suffers. One method that higher education administrators are choosing to ease the economic crunch is to offer hybrid classes that blend one regular face-to-face class meeting with online and outside class components. The challenge of managing large numbers of students in hybrid classes while fostering student engagement can be monumental for higher education teachers. This article presents a discussion of observations and recommendations from the writers' experiences as first-year hybrid class teachers within an information systems environment.
