The Korean program has had a high attrition rate from beginning (K1A) to intermediate levels (K10B) (AY 2017: 77%). In searching for a solution to this trend, my colleague, Dr. Junghee Park and I received a one-year joint BLC fellowship to develop a hybrid course for intermediate level Korean. As I report for the first half of this project, I will address the following questions: Why a hybrid course as a solution to an enrollment problem? What pedagogical advantages and limitations does a hybrid format present? What does a hybrid lesson look like? Are there any administrative obstacles in offering a hybrid course?
