The Best of Both Worlds: Blended Learning in the Language Classroom

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.

The conference is also co-sponsored by The Graduate School at the University of Kentucky. While all academic papers in any area of philosophy will be considered, preference will be given to those addressing the broad themes of the intersection and relation between philosophy and community, culture, and society.  Such themes may include: What is philosophy's proper relationship to the community?  How can philosophy (or humanities/academia in general) better relate itself, or communicate its concerns, to the greater community?  What are some philosophical conceptions of community?  And so on.  All quality papers in any philosophical "style," whether "analytic," "historical,"  or "continental," will be considered.  Papers of an interdisciplinary nature are strongly encouraged.
