Bronx Community College, Hybrid Course Development Program,
Project PI: Dr. Howard Wach, Director of the new Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology
Bronx Community College has an intensive 6-month online course development program using Blackboard as the learning management system. Faculty members participate in initial face-to-face training sessions in June, develop their courses over the summer, and teach the new online courses in the Fall. Mentoring by experienced faculty members is essential throughout this program. Part of the mentoring experience involves providing initial design frameworks and examples and design critiques at crucial times throughout the process.
The program is described in detail in this publication by Dr. Howard Wach, Dr. Laura Broughton, and Dr. Steven Powers in JALN 15(1):
