Shu-Sha Angie Guan (Assistant Professor, Child and Adolescent Development. CSUN Northridge) and a team of course designers examined the effects of (1) condensing a traditional face-to-face (F2F), year-long series in research methods (for Child and Adolescent Development majors) into a semester-long hybrid course (Instructor-Driven Projects), and (2) a film project in which the students were the producers rather than consumers of electronic content (Student-Driven Projects).
The material--including an example course syllabus and student film project--is presented in MERLOT's content builder. The results suggest an equivalency of the F2F and accelerated hybrid formats.
Faculty who are teaching and designing courses in multiple delivery formats will appreciate the opportunity to review this eLearning project's activities and results.
