This poster presentation showcases the design and implementation of the hybrid KSU 4401: Senior Seminar course including the WebCt Vista Template with the learning modules, grading components and grading rubrics, discussion questions, assignments, and assessments. The hybrid format was developed to meet the needs of the diverse and dispersed college senior population.This hybrid model mirrors the telecommuting work world that seniors are entering, provides classroom contact once a week with opportunities for developing digital expertise and portfolios.
This hybrid course blends both traditional face-to-face instructions with a significant amount of time using online learning activities (discussions, assignments, assessments, and creating portfolios). The hybrid course module maximizes in-class community time with self-directed assignments online to best utilize the mission of the course which is to provide KSU seniors with an opportunity to reflect on and provide closure to their collegiate educational experience, demonstrate proficiency, develop the skills necessary to successfully transition to and navigate post-university life, understand the civic and social responsibilities of being college educated global citizens and connect with KSU in an ongoing relationship.
