Session Description

MOT 8232 Managing Technological Innovation is part of the executive Master of Science in Management of Technology degree program, where a cohort of working professionals meets one-day-per-week for 21 months. With the many time demands on these students, the goal is to keep classroom time as engaging and interactive as possible, while covering all the material. This presentation will report on an experiment to move “lecture” topics on-line, keeping the most interactive material and case studies for classroom time, while giving students one day without coming to class. Working with Academic Technology Support Services, the syllabus was mapped into specific learning objectives, 52 short videos were produced, with 20 quizzes to check student progress, and 13 discussion forums to create dialog. How it was done, the course results, student feedback and lessons for the future will be covered.

Presentation objectives:

  • Ideas for design of a hybrid course at the graduate school level
  • “Nuts and bolts” of turning the design into a compelling offering
  • Student feedback on what works, and what does not work
