ABOUT THIS ONLINE WORKSHOP
What are some of the elements that make up a resilient course that can flex according to students’ needs? What things do you need to incorporate into a course whether it’s in-person or online? What does this model look like? In this workshop, participants will explore the components of hybrid learning in order to create their own flexible course structure. Join us for Creating Broad Frameworks-That-Do-It-All, a workshop that will help make your courses more efficient, streamlined, participatory and engaging to meet student and instructor needs in a hybrid and uncertain environment. In addition to the strategies we will present, we will use participants’ responses to a pre-survey to help guide our work together.
- Define hybrid and hyflex learning and its various structures
- Identify teaching & learning strategies/frameworks used for hybrid learning
- Identify and highlight technology (e.g. Jamboard, Loom videos, Zoom, Padlet, FlipGrid, Discussion boards, etc.) to enhance students’ learning experience and outcomes in hybrid environments
- Evaluate the silver linings & opportunities associated with building hyflex courses
- Your goal! What do you hope to get out of this workshop? Fill out this pre-survey!
This workshop is intended for middle and high school educators.
