During the last few years a new form of professional development has evolved from the first wave of e-learning. This innovative delivery of course content has been termed hybrid learning. This, hybrid-learning environment blends the best features of traditional classroom teaching with the best practices of online instruction to promote active independent learning and reduced class seat time. Based on the current atmosphere of increased accountability, public school systems throughout the nation are searching for more effective and timely teacher training. This presentation will focus on the evolution that is occurring in a rural public school system, who in the past has delivered professional development courses strictly through a traditional face-to-face classroom environment, but is now committed to implement professional development through a hybrid-learning environment.
