Hybrid Teaching and Learning: Pedagogies, Tools and Experiences from Frontline Teachers

Join colleagues from PolyU and CUHK as we take a collaborative look at Hybrid Teaching & Learning. In the workshop we will consider the basics of hybrid pedagogy and look at steps taken by both universities to enable their teaching and learning spaces to deliver hybrid education. We will look at how to achieve interactions in a hybrid classroom and hear from frontline teachers in both institutions as they share their experiences of teaching in hybrid mode.
