Flexible Learning Inquiry Group

Apr 8 • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Are you beginning to think about the future of NUflex once it is no longer a necessity? The Flexible Learning Inquiry Group will meet for five sessions to read and discuss Brian Beatty’s ebook Hybrid-Flexible Course Design. Beatty pioneered the hybrid-flexible format a decade ago to respond to student needs for flexible course participation. His text includes theoretical foundations, planning strategies, and numerous case studies. We encourage participants in this group to attend multiple sessions, but will also welcome members on a session-by-session basis. The book is available online at no cost at: https://edtechbooks.org/hyflex

Additional meeting dates: February 11, February 25, March 11, March 25, and April 22.

The reading schedule for meetings is as follows:

  • 2/11: Sections 1.1-1.3 Beginnings, Costs and Benefits, Values and Principles
  • 2/25: Sections 1.4 Designing a Hybrid-flexible Course AND 3.3 New Technologies Deliver on the Promise of HyFlex
  • 3/11: Sections 2.1 Teaching a Hybrid-Flexible Course AND 3.7 A Faculty Transitional Journey from Single Mode to HyFlex Teaching
