The hybrid classroom: Teacher and student perspectives

Susy Macqueen, School of Literature, Languages and Linguistics

Hybrid-concurrent teaching involves teaching both in-person and remote students at the same time. In this talk, I will first describe how I went about simultaneous online and in-person teaching using a basic toolkit of Zoom and Wattle. After exploring the technical aspects, I’ll discuss my teaching experience and some of the challenges, pitfalls and joys of this complex delivery mode. I’ll share some insights from students about what it is like to be an online/in-person student in a hybrid-concurrent class and their tips for teachers. Finally, I’ll offer some tentative principles for delivering hybrid-concurrent classes.
