Join the Online Learning Consortium this summer for a series of webinars designed to help you prepare for fall with research-backed practices, strategies, and ideas from the OLC Community.

Attendees selected each of these presentations—with topics including active learning and meta-cognition, using hyflex, tech tips for Canvas, Google and Apple, and the use of badging and micro-credentialing—as best in their track at the OLC Innovate 2022 conference this spring.

This series is truly for the community, by the community.

A cross-functional team at National Louis University – a private, non-profit, Hispanic-Serving Institution in the midwest – responded to the need that presented itself through the shutdowns required during the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, as well as the potential need for longer-term, remote-based teaching and learning by designing a phased, mixed methods study that will incorporate student and faculty input into the design of a Hyflex course (pilot delivery model) and to examine the impacts of the model on student agency, satisfaction, and learning achievement.
