Hybrid Delivery of Engineering Economy to Large ClassesThe current forces of increasing student enrollments, limited classroom space, and increasedbudget constraints have led many to rethink the way courses are delivered, especially those withsignificant enrollment each semester. Advances in technologies that may support learningprovide opportunities to increase efficiency while maintaining quality. This paper presents ahybrid approach to delivering an undergraduate Engineering Economy course to students at apublic four-year institution. 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. Thishybrid design incorporates technology to enhance learning, while increasing the opportunity forface-to-face interaction for students who desire that approach. Pedagogical structure and specifictechnology solutions are presented. Student perception, student performance, and specificlearning outcomes in the hybrid class are compared to those of traditional lecture delivery.
