I had the privilege on June 12 to give a 37 minute Zoom presentation and discussion to members of Colleges and Institutes Canada, a national organization to which nearly all colleges and some universities in Canada belong.

I was asked to talk about the design of hybrid learning, which I define as the deliberate design of courses to maximise the benefits of both online and campus-based teaching.

In the webinar I covered the following topics:

  • definitions (fully online, blended, hybrid, HyFlex) and the many forms of blended learning
  • the growth and increasing importance of hybrid learning in Canada
  • core design principles
  • what makes campus-based teaching special?
  • policy issues
  • the implications of Covid-19 for online and hybrid learning.

The 25 minute presentation is followed by a very good 10 minute question and answer session lead by Denise Amyot, the President of CiCAN.

CiCan has now made a recording of the presentation and discussion available on YouTube here:

I think this is one of the more lively and focused webinars I have done recently and I am very grateful to CiCAN for making this more widely available through YouTube.
