Abstract: UTC’s Learning and Leadership Doctoral Program, begun in 2005, has reviewed, revised, and refined program delivery to build and enhance learning communities through an effective and efficient mix of both face-to-face and online instruction. Since 2010, based on research of established models for communities of practice and inquiry, a new model illustrating the best practice components of hybrid learning is explored. Particular attention is given to: self-directed learning and demonstrable competence related to adult learners, communities of inquiry, the positive learning effects of deeper socialization of communities of learners, and best practices in the use of the learning management system to create a virtual classroom. This paper shares information about successes and opportunities for improvement learned in our multi-disciplinary doctoral program delivered through a combined hybrid model including both the face-to-face classroom and the Virtual Classroom.
