Hybrid Course Initiative

Ecampus supports the efforts of OSU's Hybrid Course Initiative, which places a focus on the redesign of selected on-campus courses for hybrid delivery. Through this program, the Center for Teaching and Learning provides instructional design services and facilitation of term-long faculty learning communities composed of small groups of faculty who are engaged in hybrid course redesign.
