Active Learning Tips in HyFlex Environments

Notice: If you are looking for resources on HyFlex teaching, please visit our Teach HyFlex Page

Below are some active learning tips for teaching in a HyFlex environment.

  • Group work
    • Breakout rooms during class using the web conferencing platform you have selected (note: students need to bring laptops and headsets to class to interact with remote students in breakout rooms. Use chat feature to limit noise levels in classroom)
    • Blackboard groups for live and after class activities. Groups can include :
      • Bb Collaborate Ultra for students to web conference. Or students can create their own Zoom group meetings)
      • Blogs, Discussion, email, file exchange, journals, tasks, wikis and VoiceThread
  • VoiceThread activities during and outside of class
  • Think-Pair-Share with small groups (breakout rooms of 2-3)
  • Polling questions
  • Case studies to read prior to class and discuss in groups
  • FAQ Discussion Forum
  • Short online video lectures to supplement the live streamed/recorded class lecture. This helps for the few students who may need to attend asynchronously. 
  • Discussion forum
    • Students post questions answered by other students and instructor
    • Assign discussion leader(s) bi-weekly asking leader(s) for the week to share a reflection for everyone during class
    • Instructor provides feedback on student responses during class and outside for a few posts
  • Bb Learning journals – helps students to retain lecture concepts, reflect on their learning, share only with instructor or include peers
  • Group assignments, working together to submit one assignment
  • Peer review of student’s work, anonymously – Bb Self and Peer Assessment
