Are you looking for options to engage students in hybrid learning in the classroom and online? Have you considered using technology to more effectively support student accommodations?

In this seminar, Dr. Grant Thompson (Assistant Professor, Department of Horticulture) and Marcus Jansen (MS Student, Department of Horticulture) will present their experiences adapting a hands-on experiential learning course in tree and shrub identification to a hybrid model that allowed students to transition between in-person and online learning. The teaching team developed a robust collection of photos, videos, and scans of plant specimens on campus, giving students the opportunity to distinguish one plant species from another in a virtual platform. By providing resources of synchronous and asynchronous learning, the team was able to meet student accommodation needs and generally increase course accessibility.

Participants will learn some ideas for using staged and in-the-moment digital media to reach students on campus and from afar while enhancing the ability to meet student needs.
