Hyflex and Equity

Learner Choice

HyFlex learning allows students to personalize their learning experience, giving students choice regarding the modality and style in which they learn best.

Equitable Access

A HyFlex course provides an equitable learning experience for all students in each modality- including lectures, interactive and engaging activities, instructional materials, and assessments.

Universal Design for Learning

HyFlex classroom environments naturally follow the major principles of universal design for learning (UDL), creating innovative and equitable classroom spaces.


HyFlex learning has benefits in terms of accessibility, giving students who work part-time or full-time jobs, students with mobility issues, or students with visible or invisible disabilities an alternative way to learn and access curriculum.

HyFlex learning provides learner choice and equitable access regardless of instructional modality through the utilization of Universal Design for Learning principles as well as improved accessibility of course content as it is presented multiple formats that are available when and where needed by the students.
