HyFlex learning: innovative or disruptive?

Watch this video on the nature of HyFlex learning.

The question is: can we call HyFlex learning and teaching innovative, disruptive or neither?

Moving into HyFlex learning is probably innovative. But maybe it’s also more disruptive because we already know that we can learn synchronously. Do we know how to learn asynchronously? How comfortable are we starting to rethink asynchronous as the dominant mode aligned with HyFlex objectives? How do we foster innovation in current practices around this to fully support student learning outcomes? Maybe it’s disruptive in terms of asking people, teachers, designers to think in a different way.

We invite you to consider your position on HyFlex learning based on your understanding, context, and disposition towards new ideas and practices. Do you think it is innovative or disruptive?

What are your thoughts about initial impacts on stakeholders when implementing HyFlex learning?
