- Paul Hibbitts has been a sessional instructor at Simon Fraser University for over 20 years and he is the founder of Hibbitts Design
Paul Hibbitts has taught CMPT-363 User Interface Design at Simon Fraser University for over 20 years, and at the very start of 2020 he trial ballooned a blended approach for his 3-hour evening section of the course, which was not pursued at that time. However, I bet you saw this coming… this blended variation gave him a significant foundation to build from when CMPT-363 was required to be fully online starting in May 2020 due to COVID-19. Since then, heavily influenced by student feedback and supported with highly iterative development focused on improving the student experience, the course is now one of the most sought after (and almost only) online offerings in Computing Science at SFU. In this session, Paul will share some of the lessons learned as this course has been delivered online over five successive offerings.
