Title

Hybrid Delivery Of Engineering Economy To Large Classes

Abstract

The current forces of increasing student enrollments, limited classroom space, and increased budget constraints have led many to rethink the way courses are delivered, especially those with significant enrollment each semester. Advances in technologies that may support learning provide opportunities to increase efficiency while maintaining quality. This paper presents a hybrid approach to delivering an undergraduate Engineering Economy course to students at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. The hybrid mode blends online and face-to-face delivery methods, and allows students to utilize resources and access learning support in a "buffet" manner. This hybrid design incorporates technology to enhance learning, while increasing the opportunity for face-to-face interaction for students who desire that approach. Pedagogical structure and specific technology solutions are presented. Student perception, student performance, and specific learning outcomes in the hybrid class are compared to those of traditional lecture delivery.
