How do we design and communicate the quality integration of face-to-face and online learning components?

Extended Abstract

In this session, we will define the various types of blended learning courses (differentiated by amount of seat time reduced and pedagogical models used to facilitate student learning) and investigate the challenges of integrating online and face-to-face components. Consideration for how to clearly communicate the course design to our students will also be included. Factors that can influence the perception of course quality will be discussed and the Quality Matters™ Rubric will be presented as a tool for supporting high-quality course design. Suggestions for how to apply and translate these standards across the online and face-to-face spectrum will be explored.

At the end of this session, the participants will be able to:
* Contrast various models of blended course design based on seat time allocation and types of course activities.
* Describe how the integration of face-to-face and online components influences course design.
* Discuss methods of communicating the integration of face-to-face and online components to students.
* Describe how the Quality Matters™ Rubric provides a quality framework for blended course design.
