Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Fernando Rubio

Increasing class sizes and teaching online have been challenges to effective language instruction and other domains that require high instructor to student contact and peer-to-peer contact. In this lecture, Rubio will discuss strategies that his Spanish Language Department has used at the University of Utah to reduce the cost of instruction, maintain the same level of proficiency, and increase both instructor satisfaction and student retention using hybrid courses.  

 
Fernando Rubio has a PhD in Spanish Linguistics from the State University of New York at Buffalo and he is currently teaching Spanish Linguistics at the University of Utah, where he is also Co-Director of the Second Language Teaching and Research Center. He is the author of two textbooks, and editor of Hybrid Language Teaching and Learning: Exploring Theoretical, Pedagogical and Curricular Issue, Heinle, 2012.
