Summary A basic course in public speaking is required of undergraduate students at most universities and community colleges. The purpose of this phenomenological study was to understand the lived experiences of full- and part-time faculty and teaching assistants who transitioned from the classroom-only model to a split delivery of course content in a hybrid format: 50% delivered online and 50% in class. The change in delivery was a decision given to the department, and this study examined the impact of that ordered change as well as the experiences of faculty involved in the evolution of the new model. This research adds to the existing body of knowledge encompassing teaching online, and offers a perspective on how a department can successfully integrate the online component into an essentially performance-based curriculum.
