The key to a successful hybrid course is planning and sound design. Find resources that walk you through the backward design process that aligns activities and assessments with desired course outcomes.

Blended/Hybrid Backward Design Model

The key to a successful course is planning and sound design. The steps in this course are based on the backward design model developed by Wiggins and McTighe in their book Understanding by Design (Wiggins and McTighe 13-21). In this model, one begins with identifying desired outcomes and moves through designing engaging activities and assessments that support those outcomes. In his book Creating Significant Learning Experiences, L. Dee Fink presents a modified version of this approach, which he refers to as the Integrated Course Design Model (Fink 74-75). We have modified this model slightly for the sake of simplicity.
