Notes
MLL 301 is a three-credit hybrid course that meets face to face for two credits; a third credit consists of interactive web-based and on-site activities completed in a supervised format. *** This hybrid course requires both classroom and online time; reliable internet access and computer literacy; and the ability to self-manage independent learning assignments according to deadlines. In place of reduced classroom hours, required online work is connected to classroom learning and may include independent mastery assignments, discussion boards, videos with quizzes, writing assignments, and other active learning experiences. Students are responsible for both classroom attendance and completing these out-of-classroom learning experiences by the specified deadlines and in accordance with instructor requirements.
