5 Models for Making the Most Out of Hybrid Learning

By John Spencer  September 15, 2020. The original text can be found here.

In his article, Spencer answers the question: How can you design your course effectively when you have a group of students in your classroom and another group is learning at home?
Spencer proposes…… “five different models for structuring hybrid learning. Every model has its strengths and weaknesses. As educators, we need to be strategic about which model we select based on the needs of our students. The following table illustrates these differences.”

In his post, he explains the five models in more detail and gives valuable suggestions on what you can do as a teacher to design a good learning process for both groups of students.

He closes his blog with the remark: “

No Perfect Model
Each model works well in certain situations and poorly in others. As teachers, we can think strategically about how to design our learning to optimize the benefits of each model. As schools, we can think creatively about when and how to use these models to avoid some of the pitfalls of a spork-based approach to learning. Even so, there will be mistakes. Learning is dynamic and complicated, and hybrid learning adds another layer of complexity. However, by being intentional, we can help students thrive in every learning environment”.
