Hybrid with Very Little Online (Hybrid Option 7)

You have chosen the hybrid option with very little online course delivery. This option is ideal for the following kinds of courses:

  • Lab courses
  • Courses with very expensive resources that must be accessed at the university
  • Performance courses
  • Other courses that require coming to the university

This option is the closest to a Traditional Classroom Instruction (TCI) course, but some modifications must be made to ensure safety. These modifications could include:

  • Content delivery may need to be modularized
  • In-person content delivery may need to be less frequent than with typical TCI delivery
  • In-person content delivery may need to be set up on a rotating basis to ensure social distancing requirements

All courses with in-person content delivery will also need to follow these guidelines:

  • Social distancing requirements must be followed at all times
  • Instructors and students must wear face coverings during class, including during lecture

While anyone can choose this option for their course, if your course does not require in-person contact, please look over the other options as well to see if something with more online content will suit your needs.

Instructors who choose to require very little to no online/remote content should still put certain content online in the the university's Learning Management System, Blackboard. The more resources you can put online now, the more insurance you will have later if the university is forced by circumstance to require a move to fully remote class delivery.  

To assist you in putting some of your content online, Instructional Design and Access has created a learning path for you as part of the Academic Resources Conference (ARC). Please go to the "Topic or Track" sessions listing for the ARC here, and choose "Conference Tracks" and then "Hybrid Option 7" for a list of recommended trainings to support you. We will be offering a mix of online/on-demand video trainings, online/real-time interactive trainings, web-based narrative trainings, and currated articles to fill out your full learning path.
