Hybrid Learning: Course Design and Faculty Development

Hybrid learning models are one of the fastest-growing delivery modes in higher education. The growth of hybrid models has been fueled in large part by students with differing technology comfort levels, institutions with physical space constraints, and an increase in the demand for more scheduling options.

In order to successfully launch a hybrid learning initiative, institutions must have several components in place: a hybrid (re)design faculty development program, technical support of instructional technologies, and a sound institutional implementation plan. Join us online to learn how to address each of these critical components and others.

When: Thursday, March 24 (1:00 - 2:30 p.m.) - Register

Free college textbooks for Ohio students

Columbus State a participant in pilot program

E readerThe Ohio Board of Regents recently announced a joint pilot program between the University System of Ohio and Flat World Knowledge, the largest publisher of free and open college textbooks for students worldwide. The program will allow 1,000 Ohio students to receive digital textbooks for free.

Faculty at Columbus State, Miami University, Wright State University, Kent State University, Ohio University, the University of Dayton and the University of Toledo are among 1,600 professors at over 900 colleges worldwide who have used Flat World open textbooks. For more information on Flat World Knowledge, visit their website at

Faculty in the pilot who select Flat World textbooks for their courses and agree to participate in a research project focused on student learning can offer their students free access to the Flat World Knowledge suite of digital learning materials and low-cost access to print textbooks.

Under the program, students are able to choose from a variety of textbook formats, including an online version; e-books for the iPad, Kindle and other e-readers; audiobooks; PDF downloads; and interactive study aids. The digital files are nonexpiring and are not digital rights management (DRM) copy-protected, allowing students to transfer the content from device to device. Students who prefer a printed book will have the option to purchase a low-cost softcover copy.

Faculty interested in participating in the pilot should email Associate Vice Chancellor Darlene McCoy, For more information on Ohio’s effort to help make textbooks more affordable for college students, please visit:
