Balancing Student Flexibility, Choice and Self-direction for the Whole Class as a Hybrid and Multi-access Learning Community

December 13, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

This is a multi-access event.

This event is part of the CTLT Winter Institute, taking place from December 12-15, 2022.

As classes move to hybrid and multiaccess approaches, multi-access learning is changing the way that faculty and students teach and learn (Bülow, 2022). In this session, we will explore and strategize a key question that has emerged in teaching in hybrid and multi-access learning environments.

How can we balance student flexibility, choice and self-direction with an optimal experience for the whole class as a learning community?

This session will showcase the hybrid approach in the Masters of Health Administration program at the School of Population and Public Health and Computer Applications in Forestry, an undergraduate-level course in the Faculty of Forestry.

We plan to share practices we tried that worked or failed. We will also explore and discuss the feasibility of applying these practices in each of our unique classroom settings. Please come ready to learn from the practices of others in the community and to continue contributing to the developing knowledge base in this area.

This is the second of three community focused sessions that invites members of the UBC teaching community to share and learn about teaching in hybrid and multi-access classrooms. We will be using Wicked Questions and other Liberating Structures for this session.
