What Are the Benefits—and Challenges—of Hyflex Instruction?

Hylfex teaching—sometimes referred to as hybrid-flexible teaching— is a dual modality teaching method that allows students to select their preferred learning environment. With the transition to online education due to the COVID-19 pandemic, instructors and students have both learned a great deal about their respective teaching and learning preferences. While the benefits of hyflex teaching are recognized for students, such as allowing them to engage in a course in a more customized way, educators often find teaching this way challenging. Although hyflex teaching provides an opportunity for instructors to continue to develop their pedagogical skills by combining both in-person and virtual elements, educators still find themselves wondering if the challenges outweigh the benefits.

This 20-Minute Mentor dives into these challenges and provides several successful solutions to help instructors embrace hyflex teaching. The presenter shares practical benefits of this teaching method as well as some time saving insights that greatly reduce the usual challenges, allowing an easier and more effective pathway to successful hyflex teaching.
