Course Syllabus

Summer Institute for DNP 2.0 School of Nursing Faculty, July 2013

Facilitated by the Center for Teaching and Learning

Description: SON faculty participants engage the pedagogy and methods for teaching hybrid courses at UW. This summer institute is itself designed in the hybrid, or blended, format to give faculty participants a "student's experience" of a hybrid course. Weekly, the cohort meets in person for a two-hour session. The other activities take place online. In each venue, the pedagogical practices model active learning. While experiencing a blended learning format, participants develop courses based on cognitive presence, teaching presence, and social presence (Garrison, Anderson & Archer, 2000).

Goals: All faculty participants will:

  • Experience the hybrid format from a student's perspective
  • Identify Canvas and Tegrity features that support course goals and instructor efficiency
  • Develop strategies for aligning goals, activities, and assessments in the hybrid format
  • Draft and peer review syllabi for hybrid courses


  • In Person: July 15, 22, and 29, 1:10-3:20 p.m., Paccar Hall 492 (Map)
  • Online: Between Face-to-Face Sessions, Canvas Learning Management System (
  • Coaching: Autumn, Winter, and Spring Quarters, Times & Locations TBD


Required Items: Please bring your laptop. While tablets are welcome, laptops are more fully functional for Canvas. Also, please bring materials for the course you are designing--whatever will help you think about your syllabus and assignments. These materials can be online or hard copy.

Assignments: You will submit some assignments electronically using Canvas. Additional instructions will be provided by the facilitators, and online assistance is available from the associated help center.

Guides, Policies, and Resources: Check the institute website, under Pages, for additional guides, policies, and resources, including Suggested References.
