2024 HyFlex Collaborative Conference: A HyFlex (Online Synchronous and Asynchronous) Conference

Hosted by the HyFlex Collaborative Community and the University at Albany, SUNY

The HyFlex Collaborative is pleased to announce the 2024 annual HyFlex Collaborative Conference on Thursday, June 27, from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM Eastern Standard Time. The title of the summer conference is Unleashing Education: Adopting and Adapting HyFlex for Student Learning. The HyFlex Collaborative is a community of K-12 and higher education educators working together to improve access to high-quality and equitable learning through Hybrid-Flexible (HyFlex) learning design and delivery. HyFlex teaching and learning combines online and in-person instruction into a single course/class, allowing each student to determine their participation mode of instruction.  HyFlex learning opportunities promote student-centered flexibility for all learners (traditional, adult, and K-12). Flexibility promotes learner retention, progression, and success.

The 2024 Conference seeks concurrent proposals that closely align with the educational practices and principles of HyFlex education related to the fields of K-12, higher education, adult learning, professional development, and online education.

Proposals are welcomed for individual presentations that can share best practices, lessons learned, and address the needs of diverse populations focusing  on the HyFlex mode of instruction. The theme for this important conference is directly related to the HyFlex Principles of Learner Choice, Equivalency, Reusability, and Accessibility in teaching and learning related to K-12, Higher Education, and Adult Learning.

We are specifically looking for proposals in the following areas:

  • HyFlex Design & Delivery
  • HyFlex – Technology and Beyond
  • Evolving and Adapting HyFlex to the Institutional needs
  • Next Generation of HyFlex – What could HyFlex look like without the barriers (in a perfect world)
  • Student Success and Factors of Influence:
