Hello colleagues, The recent LINCS live event on HYFLEX (i.e., some learners attend class in-person while others join remotely at the same time) presented by ESOL teacher Vi Hawes was excellent. Check out this follow-up discussion in the LINCS Integrating Technology group in which Vi responds to participants' questions. You'll also find a Wakelet link to a great many resources -- including classroom videos-- on how to implement a HYFLEX class effectively.
I'm curious how many teachers are currently using a HYFLEX model. It's clear that this approach allows for flexibility that many learners value; however, it also presents some challenges for teachers. Vi Hawes offers many valuable suggestions for addressing the challenges and making HYFLEX work well.
Are you teaching using a HYFLEX model? Let us know how it's working for you. Also, please feel free to pose any questions you have about this approach.
Cheers, Susan Finn Miller
