Hyflex learning to improve student success

The word “HyFlex” has been used to describe a learning, but the meaning of the term extends beyond that. HyFlex is an ideology and a strategy to give students expanded educational opportunities writes Jodie Penrod Senior Director, Technology Ohio University, USA

The article states that the term HyFlex was coined by Brian Beatty at San Francisco State University and refers to classes that allow students to participate face-to-face or online, synchronously or asynchronously.

Colleges must recreate and redefine their value by investing in tools to improve student success.
For higher education to remain relevant in the post-pandemic era, both physical and virtual learning spaces must be incorporated into pedagogical practices.

The future success of higher education is greatly challenged by new methods and new technology. The pre-pandemic days for students attending their classes either in person on campus or online are not modern. If nothing else, the covid-19 pandemic has taught teachers that students want to tailor their experience based on their personal preferences, whether it’s about planning how they want to go in the lesson or deciding the hour before the lesson what works best for them. The perceived negative stigma for students completing their online courses is diminishing, as this is the “new normal” for today’s workforce.

Higher education institutions must use this post-pandemic reality as the driving force to recreate and redefine their value by investing in tools to improve student success. The collective learning space – physical and virtual – must be incorporated into pedagogical practices and teaching and learning strategies at colleges and universities worldwide. Improving the range of courses by implementing a HyFlex strategy for academic programs will enhance the student experience and help higher education institutions remain relevant in the changing educational landscape.
