This paper describes and discusses an undergraduate teacher education course that was converted into a hybrid format. When taught for the first time, data was collected on instructional (online activities) and non-instructional (contextual issues, learner characteristics) factors, as well as data on student perceptions of their online experiences. When this data was analyzed, the study identified trends and design elements that could be applied to help improve the quality of the hybrid course when redesigned and taught again. The paper recommends ways of fostering quality in the design of hybrid courses and for supporting instructors who are new to online course design in teacher education programs.
