Hybrid systems : a new perspective for teaching in higher education
Hy-sup is a European research project (6 partners) whose aim is to better understand hybrid systems, increasingly present in teachers' practices.
Research works took place between 2009 and 2012, according to both a quantitative and qualitative methodology.
Hybrid system : any training system (lecture courses, continuing education) that uses a digital environnement (an e-learning plateform). This system offers students resources or activities to be used or performed remotely (outside the classroom) and in-site (in classrooms). The ratio of distance and in-site activities can vary according to the different systems.
Our research has highlighted six types of hybrid systems. We aim to understand their impact on
- students learning
- teaching practices
- institutions in higher education.
This website will concern :
- teachers, who will have the opportunity to analyze their practices and compare them to those of colleagues, using a typology of hybrid systems, a self-positioning tool and video stories ...
- trainers, academic advisors, instructional designers... who will find resources and suggestions for the building of training activities with teachers.
- institutional managers, who will find useful analyzes to pilot their institution in order to develop international, mobile and flexible higher education throughout life... but also training focused on students learning, activities, choices and skills .
The purpose of this research is
- to contribute to the understanding of how higher education institutions are adapting to students and to society in the 21st century.
- to improve the knowledge and quality of teaching practices in higher education.
