What are Variable Credit Hybrid Courses? Hybrid courses combine on-site (face-to-face) classroom instruction and online delivered instructional components. The amount of time on site and the time on-task within the electronic environment contributes to the variable number of credit hours. The hybrid courses begin with an on-site instructional component, or professional development workshop, ranging from 8 to 18 hours. These professional development workshops provide learning theory and associated pedagogy to enable teachers to present science more effectively in the classroom using hands-on experiences, laboratory experiments and other learning activities that are both educational and fun. The workshops provide content information and modeling of hands-on, inquiry-driven teaching pedagogy, which allows teachers to experience the lessons from a student’s point of view and gives them a strategy for conducting openended experiences in the classroom. Following the on-site instruction, students extend and apply the content and pedagogy of the workshop topic in a guided series of online learning modules and discussions which cumulate with a final project. The estimated amount of time spent in the online component ranges from 15 to 20 hours.
