Preparing to Teach a Hybrid Course

To promote a safe and healthy campus environment that incorporates social distancing precautions while allowing students to return to classrooms, many classes at the University of Miami will be transitioning to a “hybrid” format in the fall. This format mixes in-person classroom teaching with live videoconferencing, with groups of students rotating who attend in-person.

To help prepare faculty members for the upcoming semester, we have prepared a teaching guide with useful guidance regarding logistial, technical, and pedagogical considerations. Written in an easy-to-follow question-and-answer format, this guide is a good starting point for faculty members seeking assistance for teaching in a hybrid format.
