Abstract

The present paper reports on a "hybrid" course, where a significant amount of the course-related learning activities take place in an online learning environment, making it possible to optimize the learning and teaching methodologies and the amount of time spent in the classroom for a short and intensive International Summer Course. Twenty eight candidates applied for the course from six different countries with different ethnical and religious believes. Twenty five students from four different countries (Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia and Serbia) attended the ”Online Teaching” Summer Course. The official language of the course was English. The traditional face-to-face instruction is reduced but not eliminated. Instead, active learning techniques are implemented, both in and outside of the class room and are used “to supplement rather than replace lectures”. This paper addresses the authors (co-teachers) experience throughout the course the “International Summer School” that was held in Bitola, Macedonia. Keywords - Hybrid Course, Multicultural, Multiethnic, Active Learning, Online Teaching.
