Exploring Flexible Learning (EFL)
Exploring Flexible Learning (EFL) is a two-week hybrid/blended short course that provides faculty an opportunity to experience the hybrid/blended course environment from a student's perspective while working to create their own hybrid/blended or flipped course. Facilitated by UConn’s eCampus staff, the course is offered three times a year in Summer, Fall, and Spring. The course content and activities are designed for faculty who will be planning, developing, and teaching a hybrid/blended course in a subsequent semester.
Please note this course is offered in a hybrid/blended format. In the 2 week session, participants will engage in 4-6 hours of asynchronous online activity in HuskyCT per week. Additionally, they will attend two required in person sessions. Space in the course is reserved for faculty committed to attending both workshops and completing all online activities.
