What Are Best Practices for Hyflex Course Design and Delivery?

Hyflex teaching—sometimes referred to as hybrid-flexible teaching—is an instructional method that combines in-person and virtual learning. Following the transition to online education at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, instructors and students, at institutions small and large, have learned a great deal about their respective teaching and learning preferences. Educators can be challenged to both create and deliver content in this format because it can seem time consuming or overwhelming to work in two formats at once.

This 20-Minute Mentor helps educators overcome these challenges by detailing the best practices to consider when teaching a hylfex course. You’ll start with the specifics of hyflex teaching and its differentiating features and conclude with the presenter delivering personal insights, tips, and best practices for course design and delivery in this teaching format.
