The following are examples of blended courses taught at institutions in the United States. More examples will be added in the future.

University of Central Florida

MAN4350 – Training and Development

Dr. Kathie Holland
College of Business Administration, Management Department
Fourth year undergraduate course

Dr. Holland’s course focuses on training and development activities as performed by organizational specialists and covers theory, issues, practices, and problems. This course is designed to provide students with management knowledge and skills to develop workplace learning and performance of employees. By the end of the course, students will objectively evaluate and understand human resource development and performance improvement situations and determine the best course of action from a manager’s point of view.

Students learn through self-directed study of the text, online learning modules and assignments, classroom lecture, and extensive use of in-class and online participative activities such as teamwork, case studies, skill practice, etc.

PHH 3700 – American Philosophy

Dr. Nancy Stanlick
College of Arts & Humanities, Philosophy Department
Third year undergraduate course

American philosophy is a thematic and chronological survey of philosophical, religious, and scientific developments in American thought, with primary focus on the American spirit of individualism and reform. It is a survey course and includes many figures and ideas in the history of American philosophy. American philosophy involves analysis of some major problems of philosophy as well as a historically arranged look at developments in and of American thought from the Colonial era to the present. The texts for the course focus on the themes of optimism, individualism, and reform in ethical, metaphysical, epistemological, and social/political contexts. There is potential disagreement surrounding the themes, and it is certainly possible to argue that American philosophy is NOT characterized specifically by those three things. The position of the editors and authors of the texts, however, is that it is possible to understand the history and problems of American philosophy through these three (as well as other) concepts.

MAN3025 – Management of Organizations

Dr. Linda Putchinski (retired)
College of Business Administration, Management Department
Third year undergraduate course

Dr. Putchinski recently retired. One of the management courses she taught was an introduction to the theory and practice of managing formal organizations, including planning, organization theory, human behavior and control. Dr. Putchinski used several strategies to make sure her students came to class prepared so classroom time could be used to expand on the content and explore examples.
