ABSTRACT
This is an exploratory study of students' reactions to a hybrid homiletics course. The goals of the study were twofold: (1) assist in the design and implementation of a prototype hybrid, preaching course; and (2) conduct the study to determine students' reactions to the design and implementation of the course. Two questions framed the study to ascertain students' feelings regarding how the course was designed to deliver content: (1) How would students react to a prototype hybrid course in preaching? (2) What recommendations would students offer to enhance learning and improve future hybrid course development? Data was collected by electronic survey, focus groups and individual interviews. The data confirms that course design (1) is essential to ensure optimal learning for students, (2) is essential for students to perform well in a hybrid course, (3) is directly correlated to students' attitudes and perceptions of the course overall satisfaction with the course.
