Once you’ve completed the asynchronous Modules in CourseWorks (approximately 4 hours), including Module 5: Hybrid/HyFlex Essentials, join the CTL and other faculty participants for this 90-minute synchronous session. Join us to connect with colleagues teaching hybrid courses, share ideas and teaching approaches, discuss challenges and solutions in breakouts, engage in Q&A discussion, and plan for your course context.
This session will be held in a Columbia classroom on Morningside campus and will be facilitated using hybrid (HyFlex) methods. Participants can choose between attending via Zoom or in-person. Register through the links below:
