Incorporating Self-Study Methodology into a Hybrid Course Design Experiment
Fayne, Harriet R.
i.e.: inquiry in education, v1 n1 Article 9 Apr 2010
This investigation utilized self-study as an impetus for change in teaching practices for post-tenure faculty. Two instructors collaborated with 33 graduate students enrolled in a teacher research methods course. Across a ten-week term, faculty and students examined both possibilities and challenges created by running parallel class meetings each week (one virtual, one face-to-face). Using social networking tools as well as conventional forms of data gathering, instructors found that, while students appreciated the flexibility that the hybrid design afforded, a majority preferred to attend the face-to-face sessions rather than to take advantage of the online classes. The author discusses possible explanations for attendance patterns and suggests ways that the online option could be enhanced.
