Experiment on Applying the Learner-Centered Principles and Strategies: From Face to Face Instruction to a Hybrid Course Learning Format

This paper discusses the transition from traditional face to face instruction to a hybrid format using the
newly drafted 8 Standards of the Educational Leadership Constituents Council [1] as guidelines for
the curriculum, the 14 Learner Centered Principles [2] from the American Psychological Association
as elements for instructional delivery. Best practices for the development of comprehension in content
areas from transitional face to face instruction in the areas of pre, during, and post reading in hybrid
format instruction are used as examples including ways to provide differentiation of instruction [3]
These include strategies to increase prior knowledge needed to comprehend the concepts and
various assessment methods to demonstrate knowledge gained through student choice of not only
the method of presentation by also the topic based on prior knowledge, learning gained during the
course, demographics of the school/district, current position, diversity, and interest. The key to
providing instruction in a hybrid course is developing an understanding of how adults learn. The
American Psychological Association developed 12 Learner-Centered Principles in 1993 [4] which
were expanded [2] to 14.
