—This paper examines the role and effectiveness of
hybrid course offerings within the higher education context.
Providing a review of the growing body of academic literature
on the effectiveness and learning outcomes of the hybrid model,
this paper also provides a look at two distinct hybrid courses;
one lower-division college algebra course and one
upper-division human resource management course. The
strengths and weaknesses of these hybrid courses are assessed
and discussed alongside a brief proposal for continued
academic research examining hybrid course best practices.
