Seminar – Explore the Steps to Mixed Mode Teaching!

Thursday, 28 January, 2021 - 14:00 to 15:30

Hello to the new Spring semester! We’ve come a long way since last year and we have shown that we can be agile, and we can adapt.

Moving forward, we know the new normal still means uncertainty and being prepared for classes to go from fully online to some face-to-face with strict social distancing measures in place. Mixed Mode teaching has been carried out by some teachers at HKUST since September 2020 and will continue when the situation allows. This is when a teacher is facilitating a live class of online students and in-class students at the same time, which can provide the flexibility to accommodate students overseas and follow safety precautions for faculty and students on campus.

To ensure we are offering equitable teaching and learning, and to meet student demands, the university would like to introduce you to Mixed Mode teaching. If you’re interested in learning more about how to deliver Mixed Mode teaching or if you’ve missed our previous session, please join us by registering below.

The seminar will cover:

  1. What is Mixed Mode and other flexible options
  2. Pedagogy with sample lesson plans
  3. Equipment and classroom set-up

All faculty are welcome to join, even if you’re just curious!

Date: 28 January 2021 (THU)
Time: 14:00 - 15:30PM

The session will be delivered via Zoom with time for Q&A.
After you register, you will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link.

The seminar will be facilitated by CEI Instructional Designers Amy Chong, Bee Dy and Chris Tse. Amy, Bee and Chris have rich experience supporting live online teaching at HKUST. They are part of CEI’s Technology-enhanced Teaching team, which promotes the adoption of instructionally sound technologies in teaching and learning.
