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:

The Online Learning Advisory Council (OLAC) Presents:
A Monthly Express Series on Teaching Hybrid Courses

Each month during the spring semester, faculty from the City Tech Online Learning Advisory Council (OLAC) and Dr. Karen Lundstrem, Chair of OLAC, will present techniques, resources, and best practices on a specific topic that is relevant to creating hybrid learning spaces designed to deepen student understanding and increase student success. After the presentations, faculty participants will enter breakout rooms to explore how they might best use some of these techniques, or are currently using them, in their own classes. Participants will come back to the session to share their experiences, ask questions, and have further discussion on the topic.
