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.
HyFlex teaching presents multiple paths through course content. This works well for courses where students arrive with varying levels of prior knowledge or expertise in the subject matter. Courses designed according to the HyFlex model help eliminate the boundary between face-to-face and virtual classrooms. By allowing students access to both platforms simultaneously, the design encourages discussion thread and classroom activities to move between platforms.
