The following items may be used to help you plan your hybrid course. As you plan, consider matters of equity for your students. For example, learners may not have reliable internet or devices with working webcams/microphones; their living situation may be less than ideal; they may be caregivers to children or elderly parents, etc.

As a result, consider how to adapt “participation/engagement” requirements for individuals who cannot attend synchronous sessions (i.e., their internet connection drops). For instance, you might record synchronous sessions and ask those who could not attend to view the recording and respond to a related prompt as a means of participating and engaging with the learning experience.

Get Started

Plan alternative assessments in lieu of proctored exams where possible in an effort to develop equitable assessment opportunities for all learners.
