OLC Fellow Robert Ubell shares insights from his forthcoming book Staying Online: How to Navigate Digital Higher Education.
After unintentionally having the opportunity to experience both versions of the Institute for Emerging Leadership in Online Learning immersion week, I find myself thinking of Hyflex differently.
Dr. Lesa Louch, the driving force behind Baker College’s Exemplary Review status for the Quality Scorecard for the Administration of Online Programs, shares lessons learned and inspiration found throughout the review process.
Online higher education specifically sits in a unique position when it comes to class size, especially considering that the majority of the discussion about class size has focused on face-to-face environments.
As more and more of our potential learners engage with these tools in their personal and professional lives, we, in education, need to integrate these experiences in teaching and learning purposefully to stay current with required practices and skills in the marketplace.
HyFlex is more than just adding an online option to an existing classroom-based course. Combining modes and allowing students to choose among available modes is a powerful change to the learning experience – both for students and for faculty.
It is our shared goal to build, to design, to remix, to story, to transform, and to action-plan with our community. And it is our belief that intentionally designing with engagement in mind will help us reflect on and therefore move towards more diverse, inclusive, and equitable learning experiences.
Work with colleagues from around the world to identify challenges and opportunities in online, blended, and digital learning environments and systems.
Leading the charge of digital learning in higher education today, as we emerge from the global pandemic with greater respect for digital learning, demands a different set of leadership knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics than in the past.
