hybrid small group model background
Hybrid Small Group Model:Background
  • Seminar with emphasis on small group interaction and discussion
  • 2 instructors with 7 face-to-face and 15 online students
  • 1 Tech Nav for pre/post design and real-time support
hybrid small group model primary challenges
Hybrid Small Group Model:Primary Challenges
  • How to move students easily from one discussion “space” to another
  • How can instructors “sample” the discussions for impressions of student understanding
innovating the hybrid small group model
Innovating theHybrid Small Group Model
  • Iteration 1: Shared iPads
  • Iteration 2: Shared desktops
  • Iteration 3: Audio configuration
  • Techniques/Courseware: How the tech was set up
  • Context & Issues: Problems that arose
  • Solutions: How we addresses the problems
iteration 1 hybrid small group
Iteration 1: Hybrid Small Group

1. Instructor station – Mac Mini + SMART board

2. Audio input/output – Chat160 speakerphone

3. Instructor only cam – iPad on tripod (Tripad)

5. Student stations – Separate Google Hangouts with face-to-face and online participants

4. Balcony – laptop connected to Sony SMART TV

iteration 1 context and issues
Iteration 1: Context and Issues
  • Hangouts envisioned as “spaces” students could enter and leave as required
    • iPads did not support Hangouts when no one was present
  • Use of audio splitters on iPads not 100% effective
  • Confines made simultaneous small group discussion difficult (audio overlap)
iteration 1 needed solutions
Iteration 1: Needed Solutions

Instructors, Tech Nav, and the Design Studio team determined a need for:

  • Larger facilities
    • transitions between stations was not smooth for face-to-face students
  • More focused audio channels
  • Devices to support stable online group discussions
iteration 2 hybrid small group
Iteration 2: Hybrid Small Group

4. Student stations – Separate Google Hangouts with face-to-face and online participants

3. Audio input/output – Chat160 speakerphone

2. Instructor only cam – iPad on tripod (Tripad)

1. Balcony – laptop connected to projector screen showing online participants in GTM

iteration 2 applied solutions
Iteration 2: Applied Solutions
  • Relocate to a larger room
  • Replace shared iPads with shared desktop iMacs
  • Audio splitters more effective with desktop computers
    • More focused audio channels
  • Confines made simultaneous small group discussion manageable
iteration 2 context and issues
Iteration 2: Context and Issues
  • Larger room made background noise more distracting
  • Online students having difficulty hearing instructors
iteration 3 applied solutions
Iteration 3: Applied Solutions
  • Wireless microphones paired to desktops at each student station
conclusions
Conclusions
  • Instructors’ pedagogical strategy and vision leadsthe design
  • Configurations should be tested extensivelybut…
  • Human interactions and the environment can require radical changes to initial configurations
conclusions cont
Conclusions (cont.)
  • Clear, focused audio is VITAL
  • Tech Nav: vital to assisting and assessing pre/post class needs and real-time support
  • Configurations can always be refined to support specific pedagogical visions
