The Instructional Design Process for a Blended Learning Course
Abstract: Two instructional designers and a faculty member will share their experience with a course that was offered using a blended methodology across two campuses in the Penn State University system. The problem was twofold: first to offer a course that was required for the Information Sciences and Technology degree program at two campuses that had low student enrollment; and secondly, only one of the campuses had an instructor approved to teach the course. The solution was to offer the course cross-campus delivered synchronously using a blended learning methodology. The course was designed to use a blend of strategies and techniques, video conferencing, face-to-face visits, Net Meeting, and the course management system. This Best Practice session will focus on the planning, implementation and evaluation of this blended method; and address lessons learned throughout the experience and future plans.
