Policy for Teaching online & Hybrid Courses

Hybrid (H) courses at City Tech are any course wherein 33-80% of scheduled class meetings are replaced with online activities or virtual meetings. Online (O) courses are more than 80% online. Both hybrid and online courses need to be approved by the department Chair BEFORE the course is taught. Faculty must also provide the Chair with the dates they will be teaching the course online in advance. Here are some guidelines to follow to make sure students know a course is hybrid or online:

This workshop will provide examples from the professors' courses and discussion from their years of teaching hybrid courses.
