Tuesday, October 20 4:00-4:20 PM
Transforming a face to face course to a blended format in the area of marketing management, involves strategic collaboration between the instructional designer (ID) and subject matter expert (SME)/instructor. A planned partnership requires open dialogue and mutual respect for prior knowledge, expertise and experiences. SAM [Successive Approximation Model] served as the instructional design framework for re-developing the course as a blended offering (Allen, M. 2012). The course transformation process through which an experienced instructional designer and instructor partnered to conceptualize, design, develop, implement and evaluate in successive approximation, the conversion of a face to face course to blended is described and student evaluation data is presented.
