Hybrid (also called “blended”) courses are courses where 20% or more of the traditional face-to-face classroom time is replaced by online assignments and activities. Students spend less time in the classroom and more time working and interacting online, providing greater flexibility regarding when and where coursework can be completed.
In PAWS, navigate to: Curriculum Management > Schedule of Classes > Schedule New Course
Enter course and term information:
|Step 2||On the Basic Data page, enter Class Section number and Location|
The section number should be be assigned using the following number scheme:
0XX = On-campus (KENWOOD) lecture
1XX = Off-campus (OFFCAMPUS) lecture
3XX = On-campus (KENWOOD) lecture with off-campus (189) funding
|Step 3||Assign an 'Instruction Mode' value based on the percentage of the course that is taught via a 'technology' mode|
H1 = Hybrid 20-50%
H2 = Hybrid 51-80%
H3 = Hybrid 81-99%
|Step 4||Enter both hybrid attributes under 'Class Attributes'|
|Step 5||Create face-to-face meetings||If the class does not meet face-to-face every week of the semester, multiple meeting patterns should be created in the 'Meetings' tab so that the schedule of classes is accurate and rooms scheduled optimally. Make sure that the start and end dates are the same for each additional meeting. Enter a Room Characteristic ID for every class meeting that needs a General Assignment classroom.|
|Example: Meeting #1|
|Example: Meeting #2|
**Note** Uncheck the 'Print' boxes next to instructor names so that they only print once on the online schedule of classes
|Step 5||Create a class note in the 'Free Format Text' field in the 'Notes' tab:|
Sample notes: "Course taught partially online. Internet access req'd. Regular UWM tuition assessed" or "Add'l special course fee of $xxx.xx will be charged for this LEC in addition to regular UWM tuition. Taught partially online, Internet access req'd."
