Hybrid learning and teaching


Hybrid (also known as hyflex) teaching and learning describes any scenario where an activity takes place at the same time for students who are physically present in the classroom with the tutor, and for students who join the class remotely via an online platform such as Blackboard Collaborate/MS Teams.

It is advised that you consider other forms of engagement such as fully online or recording sessions with an extra tutorial if needed before looking at hybrid as a solution. There is more information about designing a blended delivery on the Blended Learning web page.

The staff guidance in the document below aims to support thinking about maximising the learning experiences of the different groups of students that may be participating in a hybrid learning session. 

Before undertaking any form of hybrid session it is advised you contact the IT Service desk as early as possible to discuss whether the technology you may require is available in your timetabled spaces. You may have to adapt your session dependant on what equipment is available.
