Hybrid Teaching Exchange Digest – 21st July 2020

Reading Time: 2 minutes
The Hybrid Teaching Exchange was launched in early June 2020.  It is an internal, University of Edinburgh website designed as a space where colleagues can share work in progress, learning, insights, ideas, plans and resources as we prepare for the move to hybrid teaching for 2020/21.  It has grown quickly, with over 30 contributions from colleagues across the institution.   The aim of these fortnightly email digests is to provide an overview of the site and highlight new and existing content that we hope will be useful and of interest to you and colleagues as we prepare for the new academic year. The site currently has three themes.

Exploring Hybrid Teaching

Exploring Hybrid Teaching provides institutional and disciplinary perspectives on what is meant by hybrid teaching, together with ideas and work in progress plans for autumn 2020.  This includes:

Hybrid Learner Journeys

Hybrid Learner Journeys provides material intended to help us understand and articulate hybrid teaching from the perspective of our students.  This includes:

Building Community and Belonging

Building Community and Belonging is the latest theme to be added.  Content includes:

Resources

The Exchange site also links to University support and other resources.  This includes the Information Services Teaching Continuity Pages that have recently been updated to focus on support for hybrid teaching, including links to support and training from ISG (Information Services Group) and the IAD (Institute for Academic Development).

Upcoming Themes

 

New themes for the coming weeks include assessment and equality, diversity & inclusion, and we will continue to add content and themes over the summer and throughout the new academic year.

Contribute and Feedback

Please do consider contributing to the site and let us know if you have suggestions for future themes and topics.
We’d also welcome your feedback on the site and we are currently running a five minute usability study (link to 5 minute usability survey).
Best wishes
