HyFlex Learning - Putting It Into Practice April 27th 11:30-1pm

Following on from the recent AHEAD conference, our first member's webinar will explore HyFlex (hybrid and flexible) learning and its benefits for inclusion.

Dr Richard Healy and Dara Ryder will introduce the topic of HyFlex learning informed by their work with the Link network (international network of professionals promoting the full inclusion of students with disabilities in higher education). We will then hear from Frances Boylan and Mark Glynn on their experiences from the ground of carrying out HyFlex teaching and its impact for staff and students.

We'll cover topics such as;

  • What is Hybrid learning and what does a hybrid university/institution look like?
  • Why should universities/institutions consider a hybrid approach – flexibility, accessibility, benefits for inclusion, research on outcomes for students etc.
  • What practical steps can institutions take to begin implementing hybrid approaches?

Free for all members of AHEAD (most HEIs and ETBs)
