Hybrid teaching for flexible learning

The hybrid workshop for flexible learning, including support, is a prioritized activity within the area of Strengthened Pedagogical Development, Support, and Accessibility. This area is part of a research and education initiative that will continue until 2025.

Over a period of four years, Centre for Educational Development (UPL) will explore and develop knowledge, abilities, and skills related to hybrid teaching and its impact on student learning, through project-based work.

The initiative is divided into three sub-projects. In 2024, the work in these sub-projects will mainly focus on implementing activities together with the core operations, as well as conducting horizon scanning and sharing experiences from the project's evaluations conducted so far.
