Thursday, March 10 3:25-3:45 PM Location: Two Rivers
Abstract: Hybrid couse development is becoming widely acceptable as a means of delivering course content to non traditional students and as a method of providing greater freedom in college course venu. But the various technologies used for hybrid teaching can also be used to improve traditional college courses and increase content equity across programs. The new Georgia Gwinnett College School of Education offers three undergraduate certification programs: Early Childhood (Pk-5), Special Education (mild/moderate Pk-12), and Teacher Certification tracks (6-12), in a variety of content majors. The program has an innovative pedegogical approach to class structure. Required courses, taken in the three semesters prior to student teaching, include imbedded field experiences that target course content. These experiences add depth and application opportunities but limit time for classroon instruction This presentation will include highlights from interactive modules and a discussion of creatively using technology to provide equity of content in pre-service education courses.
