Hybrid/Hyflex/Distance Learning

Session 1: 2:45-3:45 PM (Wednesday March 02, 2022)



We will compare and contrast the multiple new distance learning ideas. HyFlex teaching is a model that presents the components of hybrid learning in a flexible course structure that gives students the option of attending sessions in the classroom, participating online, or doing both. Students can change their mode of attendance weekly or by topic, according to need or preference. A hybrid approach to course delivery combines face-to-face classroom instruction with online activities. This approach reduces the amount of seat time in a traditional face-to-face course and moves more of the course delivery online. During classroom instruction time, students can be engaged in authentic, collaborative learning experiences. The online components can include multimedia-enhanced content and channels for ongoing discussion. The best practices and resources on this site will primarily focus on hybrid courses that utilize classroom sessions with or without a video conferencing component.

As an EL Civics Program coordinator and ESL teacher I have been using technology on a daily basis. Planning, developing, and implementing EL Civics curriculum for all ESL proficiency levels aligned with the targeted ESL curriculum would not be possible without integrating technology. Same applies for teaching and learning online in the new digital reality. Examples of integrating technology in EL Civics curriculum development and ESL classes: Burlington English, USA Learns, ESL Library .
