Building a HyFlex Course to Support Student Success

Wednesday, August 5 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern

Kent State University Online
There has been a lot of talk lately about HyFlex courses — courses that allow learners to choose how they attend the class: face to face, live online or recorded for later viewing.

If you or your institution are considering the HyFlex model as an option for this fall or beyond, you won’t want to miss this free webinar with Kent State’s Dr. Wendy Tietz. During the webinar, Dr. Tietz, who earned QM Certification for the online portion of a HyFlex course and has taught using the HyFlex format for a decade, will:

  • Define and describe the HyFlex course modality, including how to determine if it is the best fit for you
  • Share how to create engaging activities and lessons for HyFlex courses, regardless of class size
  • Identify potential issues and barriers in HyFlex design and teaching and address them with proactive development strategies

This webinar is open to educators at all levels, as takeaways can be applied to K-20 courses.
