Abstract

The study was a case-based exploratory study providing data for the implementation of hybrid learning in the trade classes at a community college. The research focused on understanding the ability of students to perform in a hybrid environment, specifically measuring the students' abilities to monitor, predict and reflect on their own learning self-regulated learning behaviors. The study utilized a mixed methods approach to determine if the students in the newly implemented hybrid environment were academically capable of performing and if they would be receptive to the change which is required for success. The quantitative research provided results that indicated students who participated in classes concurrently demonstrated the ability to adapt to the hybrid platform more so than the students who took one class utilizing the hybrid platform. The qualitative research supported acceptance of the hybrid manner of instruction.
