Workshops

Workshop: Best Practices for Hyflex Technology Enabled Classrooms

The Best Practices for Hyflex Technology Enabled Classrooms workshop will be held twice weekly through December. This fully online workshop is open to all instructors and graduate students. The offering focuses on in-class technologies available for sharing course content with both face-to-face and remote learners. Facilitators will overview tools like annotation screens and virtual whiteboards and provide strategies to meaningfully use technology to engage students. To register, visit the workshop.

Faculty Cohorts to Prepare for Spring 2021 Course Delivery

Each faculty cohort is comprised of up to 10 faculty who meet weekly with an instructional designer (ID). The small group format allows for one to one conversations with the ID, who walk faculty through various exercises to prepare for the upcoming semester. Activities include reflections on learning outcomes and teaching, engagement, and assessment strategies, along with demos for a range of learning tools. The faculty cohort program is an excellent way to build community and engage with faculty across disciplines. Instructors can request participation in an upcoming faculty cohort via the online sign-up form (requires log in).

Faculty Training and Consultation in Classrooms with HyFlex Technologies

Faculty training and consultations will be held in various HyFlex-enabled classrooms around campus. The consults will be led by a UFIT instructional designer and trainer and focus on the technical and pedagogical use of HyFlex technologies in campus classrooms. Instructors can request participation in an upcoming consult sessions through the Classroom Support website.

Teaching with Technology Consultations

The teaching with technology consultations are available on a variety of topics, from designing a Canvas course to selecting and implementing technologies for student engagement and assessment.

Bootcamp: Preparing to Teach in Classrooms with HyFlex Technology 

This workshop is designed specifically for instructors preparing to teach classrooms with HyFlex technology in the Spring 2021 semester. Over the course of two half-day sessions, participants will:

  • Determine how to use classroom technologies and digital tools to meet your teaching needs
  • Develop a course framework and delivery plan that engages both remote and face-to-face students
  • Apply good practice for bi-modal teaching to your course during workshop sessions

Facilitators will share information on technologies in classrooms, digital tools to support teaching and learning at UF, and best practices for course design and delivery to engage both remote and face-to-face students. The workshop will provide dedicated time for instructors to apply this information to their courses to prepare quality learning experiences for both face-to-face and remote students. Bootcamp participants will need to be able to commit to two half-days of active work with approximately one hour of work between the two sessions.
