HyFlex Learning Community Building the Hybrid-Flexible Future Together

Hello, HyFlex Learning Community members!


We wish each of you a very Happy New Year and a welcome to  2022! Many of us are in situations similar to last year, with some institutions starting the new year with online-only classes once again (at least for a few weeks) and even more supporting multiple modes of learners in HyFlex or other forms of hybrid courses. We aren't through with this pandemic yet, and it looks more likely than ever that we'll be living with this for a very long time, unfortunately. One of the "silver linings" continues to be the changes we see in educational systems and practices to make access to high-quality and equitable learning opportunities for our learners even more of a priority.

New Mailing List Feature

We recently added an email list for those wishing to send messages to others in the HyFlex Learning Community who have signed up for the list. This should be a useful tool for us to use to ask and answer questions and share resources and stories of practice in a less formal manner than the discussion forums and blog comments. To subscribe to the list, visit Join our Mailing List  to enter your name and email address.
