CANTON, Mo. — Dr. Dell Ann Janney ‘87, a professor of accounting at Culver-Stockton College, recently was a presenter for the Global IMA Faculty Friday Webinar Series, sponsored by the Institute of Management Accountants, an association of accountants and financial professionals in business.
Janney, who also is the associate dean of experiential education and external relations as well as the chair of the master of business administration program, led in a webinar presentation and shared their expertise in a podcast on Dec. 11, 2020. She and Wendy Tietz of Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, talked about the hybrid-flexible teaching model (also known as hyflex), its challenges and applications to accounting education. Nearly 450 people from 29 countries took part in the seminar.
The hyflex model has gained significant popularity in this pandemic environment as many faculty members at college campuses follow the need for remote teaching and learning. Hybrid classes take the best aspects of online learning and the best aspects of traditional classes and combine them for an all-inclusive learning experience. Hybrid classes generally meet 25 to 50 percent of the time online and 50 to 75 percent of the time in the classroom. Hyflex classes allow students to choose whether they want to attend class online or in person, and they can make that choice each time the class meets.
Janney and Tietz also shared practical advice about how to improve hyflex teaching to increase student engagement. The webinar recording can be heard here, and the podcast can be heard here.
Janney joined the Culver-Stockton faculty in August 1992. She helped establish the MBA program at C-SC. As the associate dean of experiential education and external relations, Janney manages the experiential education programs and provides guidance in the oversight of strategic planning.
