Hybrid Pedagogy

HybridPodHybrid Pedagogy Inc. is a non-profit that “focuses on the implementation of critical digital pedagogy in education at all levels” and seeks to “prepare learners, educators, librarians, and administrators to teach, collaborate, and think with digital technology.” To further these aims, visitors to the organization’s website will find the open-access peer-reviewed journal, Hybrid Pedagogy, as well as the Digital Pedagogy Lab, where there are blog posts, podcasts, and harvested tweets.

Hybrid Pedagogy provides a venue for voices in education that might otherwise be marginalized to be published and peer reviewed. For example, academics in the throes of late-summer syllabus writing may be interested in a 2014 article, “Syllabus as Manifesto: A Critical Approach to Classroom Culture.”

The site can be a little tricky to navigate, and it’s hard to tell what portions of the content the site search covers – but a Google search on a keyword or article title + hybrid pedagogy works perfectly. In 2015 and 2016, Digital Pedagogy Lab hosted 3- and 5-day Summer Institutes at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, University of Mary Washington in Virginia, and in Canada at the University of Prince Edward Island. For those unable to attend in person, summaries and comments on talks at the 2016 Institute can be found on the website. [DS]
