The hyflex instructional model makes it possible to accommodate learners at home and in-person by increasing accessibility for students who may not be able to participate in class otherwise. However, this model is not without challenges. In this webinar we’ll discuss some technological and pedagogical best practices for creating and maintaining a successful hyflex learning environment.
After participating in this session, learners will be able to
