Be prepared to offer every class in a face-to-face, hybrid, and online format.



Many institutions are planning courses that are adaptable to online, hybrid, and face-to-face learning options in order to be prepared for an uncertain fall. Join us with our expert speaker, Elizabeth Barrie from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, to learn how to design a course proactively so that it is adaptable in any scenario.

Elizabeth Barrie has helped faculty pivot courses using Kaufman’s notion of agile learning. Barrie will help prepare you to offer every class in a face-to-face, hybrid, and online format. In this model, students can then choose their own course path by using the combination of formats that works best for their lives, whether they are working full time, parenting, or pursuing double and triple majors. This agile framework gives students more control of their educational pace and experience while also allowing institutions the ability to offer quality instruction and be ready for unforeseen pivots.

Join us for a virtual training and dialogue to:

  • Learn the benefits of agile courses
  • Identify courses for agile development by using a simple rubric
  • Distinguish between HyFlex and agile course design
  • Learn strategies and tips to develop and implement agile courses


Who Should Attend

Leaders involved in centers for teaching and learning, faculty affairs, and academic planning will learn an approach to course design that maximizes flexibility for students and the institution.
