Abstract

From Classroom to Online to Hybrid: The Evolution of an Operations Management CourseIn this paper we will discuss the evolution of an introductory operations management course. The classis a required course in the Operations Management program in the Industrial Engineering department.The authors will discuss their experience in creating an online version of this survey course and thenreversing direction and converting the online course into a hybrid class, where class is held live one daya week and the remaining course content is administered online. The paper will discuss the evolution ofcourse assignments and the impact on student interaction and participation. Finally, we will concludewith a discussion of student response to each of the learning modes.
