The online workshop provides faculty with a set of essential guidelines for designing a preliminary digital teaching strategy to teach in a hybrid learning mode. The workshop addresses the difference between face-to-face, digital and hybrid teaching and the elements faculty can consider when migrating to the digital classroom. By participating in the workshop virtually, faculty can experience what it is like to be a remote learner. Consequently, this will allow them to become more aware of this modality's challenges and opportunities. The workshop allows traditional face-to-face teaching staff in higher education to expand their teaching practices into the digital environment. Faculty will be expected to formulate a preliminary hybrid teaching strategy for a specific face-to-face course they are currently teaching. The design should be a coherent and deliberate plan consisting of clear learning outcomes, meaningful assessments, relevant learning activities, and digital/non-digital resources.
By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
Module 1: Workshop overview
Module 2: Finding Yourself in the Digital and Hybrid Teaching Space
Module 3: Designing Your Hybrid Teaching Strategy Step-by-Step
Module 4: My Professional Development Plan
The learning dynamics in this workshop are unique. First, all the work is focused on completing a final product: a preliminary strategy to transform an existing face-to-face course into a hybrid course . Second, facilitated asynchronous activities play a primary role in preparation for the highly interactive and practical synchronous sessions. The two types of activities are further described below:
These activities are essential to learning and must be completed before participating in the live synchronous sessions. Independent asynchronous activities include self-paced tutorials, assessments, diagnostic exercises, and reviewing resources, such as websites, videos, or documents. Participants will also be interacting with each other in smaller teams. Teams provide an opportunity to share, receive and provide feedback among participants. Discussion forums will promote ongoing interactions throughout the workshop, including all the participants and facilitators. The asynchronous collaboration remains active throughout the last day of the workshop, providing ample opportunities to offer and receive feedback for the individual hybrid strategies. Full participation is expected.
The workshop includes four three-hour synchronous sessions via videoconference. The synchronous sessions are predominantly practical and applied. There will be demonstrations, case analysis, problem-solving, small and whole group activities, questions & answers, and reflective exercises. All activities are designed to help participants work through every stage of the hybrid strategy they are expected to complete by the end of the workshop.
The Workshop uses a set of tools and resources that will facilitate your learning process. The tools available in the Orientation Module are:
