A brief journey through the development of blended learning in the Department of Statistics at Miami University focusing on challenges, solutions, and lessons learned.

Extended Abstract

This session is for novices and institutional early adopters. During this session, attendees will share in the journey of transitioning a traditional, large lecture course to a blended course. In the session I will discuss the needs and challenges that led to choosing a blended design, the development and implementation of the course, analyzing results and feedback, revisions to the course, and scalability concerns.

Although an introductory statistics course at a four-year university was the course that was transformed, there are lessons that can be learned and applied to a wide variety of courses and institutional settings.

Attendees will also have an opportunity to discuss issues related to implementing a blend; student expectations, providing student support, building a learning community, active vs. passive learning, student and faculty work load, technology, and balancing face-to-face and online content. A list of dos and donts along with best practices for blends will be provided.
