Hybrid Learning Cultures

-Overview-

In a hybrid learning model, students learn both in the online and face-to-face mode. The present learning cultures, established for physical learning, do not support the new hybrid learning environments. As a result, teachers are already experiencing several issues in making hybrid learning effective.

Establishing a positive hybrid learning culture involves defining ‘what’ and ‘how’ students are expected to do to learn.

Defining and establishing a hybrid learning culture is neither obvious nor trivial. Teachers must define a positive learning culture for their classrooms that reflects the content and their unique pedagogical styles. And, the school must also establish school-wide hybrid learning culture.

This workshop will help participants TO develop the following competencies.
