The Project V-NAST2019, funded by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development, was achieved through five workshops each presenting the necessary steps towards a successful transition from traditional learning to hybrid or/and online learning. By attending the workshops, lecturers/associates at the Belgrade Polytechnic had the opportunity to gain knowledge about the possibilities of innovative forms of teaching supported by modern digital technologies as well as the "how-to" and "know-how." Also, acquaintance with new technology imposed new pedagogical approaches that differ from those found in traditional teaching. The intention of these new pedagogies is to promote a humane and ethical approach for the common good, which is an essence of educational goals for everyone. There-fore, educational technology should ensure student engagement as well as the institution's responsibility to participate in the global knowledge network. The new pedagogy seeks to encourage such engagement by ensuring the presence of interactive social dynamics in educational media spaces. The hybrid interaction between humans and virtual agents provides a real learning experience in the shared lifelong learning domain. By realizing the V-NAST2019 project, insight was given toward strategic goals and key issues that should be addressed at an early stage in the development of online teaching. The five workshops involved: strategic planning, content creation, preparation of lectures, selection of technologies, and methods of analyzing the success of teaching and student progress. The following platforms were considered for technology selection: Canvas LMS, Google Classroom, and Moodle. As a result of the project, a model of hybrid teaching was created and applied to the class CAD2 - teaching PTC Creo Parametric. From this implementation, evidence emerges that supports the benefits of hybrid teaching and the positive effects on student engagement and achievement.
