Preliminary Results From a NSF-ATE Funded Distributed Hybrid Instructional Delivery Project

Introduction

The National Center for Manufacturing Education (NCME) in partnership with the TAC/ABET accredited Quality Engineering Technology Department at Sinclair Community College received a two year National Science Foundation Advanced Technological Education (NSF-ATE) grant to develop and test a distributed-hybrid instructional delivery methodology. The primary outcome of the project grant is to evaluate the effectiveness of the delivery method as a means to increase the number of students in manufacturing related programs by providing institutions, companies, and students a way to work together both onsite and online in a cost-effective, practical way. The distributed hybrid instructional delivery method uses activity-based instructional materials for the face-to-face component, while online interactions allow the individual small groups (nodes) at the various sites function as part of a larger class, despite working at different locations and times. This paper reports preliminary results and provides examples of project deliverables.

This project extends Dan Coldeway's time and place framework for defining distance education systems, and is based on educational research including a key study at the University of Tennessee that concluded that twenty-six MBA students participating in a hybrid delivery system performed at a significantly higher level than students participating in just a resident program, p
