Details This paper reports on an example of a first-year multicultural co-curricular course offered at Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University (APU) that combines face-to-face and online instruction in a simultaneous, interactive, hybrid (high-flex) format, and clarifies the results and issues involved in its educational practice. The course is a PBL (Project Based Learning) type class in which students with different cultural and linguistic backgrounds are mixed together to conduct a project, and is a unique class utilizing undergraduate student teaching assistants. According to the results of the analysis of the class evaluation questionnaire for all students, the evaluation of all items in the hybrid type class in FY2020 increased compared to the face-to-face type class in FY 2019.
