Abstract—This study aims to develop a hybrid learning model for active Imagineering Learning to enhance digital innovator competency. The research methodology was divided into two phases: Phase 1 focusing on the development of a hybrid learning model, and Phase 2 concerning the evaluation of digital innovator competency, as well as the quality of digital innovation. The sample group included 136 undergraduate students. The duration of the experiment was 15 weeks. The research instruments consisted of a hybrid learning model, a hybrid learning lesson plan, cloud learning management platform, worksheets, digital innovator competency and digital innovation assessments form, using scoring rubric. The data was analyzed by using the arithmetic mean and standard deviation. The results showed that: A hybrid learning model for active Imagineering Learning, consisting of 3 components: model principle, hybrid learning model for active Imagineering Learning process, and methods for assessing learning outcomes. The students using the hybrid learning model had the excellent level of digital innovator competency and excellent level of quality. Rapid change and development of digital technology and the COVID-19 Pandemic. As a result, educational institutions need to adapt their learning approach to blended learning and develop student characteristics to be able to innovate using digital technology. This developed learning model is therefore a suitable method for digital learning and next-generation education.
