What is HyFlex?

The Hybrid/Flexible (HyFlex) modality is a mode of teaching meant to facilitate student learning whether they are present in-person or joining remotely. HyFlex rooms are designed with additional equipment to allow the instructor to run a class to the students in the room, and to either live-stream the class to students joining via Zoom, or to record the lectures and make them available online asynchronously.

A HyFlex approach supports student-to-student and student-instructor interactions and participatory teaching approaches. The simultaneous offering of the course on campus and via Zoom is intended to provide students flexibility, and to allow instructors a method to teach students who may not be able to attend courses on campus. To ensure the ability to teach effectively in this modality, HyFlex classes should be limited to between 40 and 50 participants.

For more information on HyFlex recommended practices please visit the HyFlex Recommended Teaching Practices page.

Note that a HyFlex model is not an acceptable model to increase enrollments in courses – rather every student registered in the section must have the option to attend the course on campus.
