The hybrid instructional methodology is a teaching and learning approach that combines in-class lecture methods with technology-assisted video lectures. This concept addresses the problem of different learning paces of students. In this model, online resources replace certain portions of the syllabus that would otherwise have been taught in the classroom.
The hybrid model has proved to have several benefits, the biggest of which is flexibility. Without the constraints of a single classroom, there is significant potential to rethink how a course is taught, how students access study material, and interact with instructors and other learners.
Resources such as video lectures, podcasts, recordings, and articles would be provided to students before each class. This then frees up time in class for teachers to support students in activities, lead discussions and facilitate engagement.
It creates the possibility of holding classes with mixed groups, providing a personalised teaching-learning experience for both students and the teachers.
IntelligenceA+ is in the process of launching the hybrid model of education which will allow students to approach assignments more creatively for overall development of students and Teachers alike using online presentations, assignments, video snippets, projects, and virtual quizzes, etc. Instructors will also be able to formulate newer methods of evaluation that suit both the subject and the students’ strengths.
