Abstract

AIM: This study examined how applying the seven principles of effective teaching to designing and delivering an undergraduate nursing research course in a hybrid format affected course quality. BACKGROUND: Existing research does not adequately describe how the design and delivery processes of hybrid courses affect course outcomes or how these processes address informatics learning resources and students' varying levels of computer skills. METHOD: A hybrid nursing research course was designed and delivered to 105 nursing students using Blackboard and Tegrity systems. Using a mixed-methods approach, students' satisfaction with the course was measured and achievement was compared with those of a comparable previous cohort that had taken the same course in the traditional format. RESULTS: Students reported high satisfaction with the course and obtained significantly higher scores than students in the previous semester. Concerns included working in groups and the additional workload associated with the online component. CONCLUSION: Applying the seven principles of effective teaching in design and delivery can improve the quality of hybrid courses.
