There is a rapid increase in the use of the hybrid instructional model by the postsecondary education community to deliver instruction. The face-to-face and virtual (online) classes are believed to use different instructional media and methods to address the needs of different learners. These learning environments were typically employed independently of each other. How instructors manage instruction within each environment could be a challenge. With limited information about how teachers manage teaching and learning using this model, the purpose of this study was to investigate and provide insight into the essence of faculty members’ experiences. The research addressed these questions: How do faculty members experience the hybrid instruction in postsecondary education? What meanings do they ascribe to the experience(s)?
