FLO Friday: Engagement Strategies for Hybrid/HyFlex Courses

*Note: This session has passed. Please view the recording below.

HyFlex combines the terms hybrid and flexible. Hybrid refers to teaching and learning that integrates face-to-face synchronous and online asynchronous learning experiences. HyFlex learning gives students flexibility and choice by allowing them to choose their participation path for each class, including face-to-face synchronous in the classroom, face-to-face via video conference (e.g., Zoom), and fully asynchronous. One significant challenge of developing hybrid and HyFlex courses is identifying activities for synchronous and asynchronous learning. Join us to identify small, manageable, meaningful learning activities.
