4th International Conference on Higher Education Learning Methodologies and Technologies Online
September 21-23, 2022
Hybrid Learning and Accessibility in higher education
Aim and Scope
The identified topic refers to hybrid solutions as educational strategies that combine face-to-face and online learning modalities, to foster education accessibility and quality. Achieving these goals requires competent faculty and academic staff, as well as institutional policies that recognise students’ educational needs. Present times require reconsidering educational curricula in higher education, which have historically been revolving around face-to-face and hands-on workshops. A new configuration should focus on accessibility and the growth of quality professionals. Teaching and learning centres (TLCs) aim to use innovative and evidence-based methodologies to enhance teaching practices.
Potential Scopes of Interest
This session addresses the topic of the transformation of teaching delivery from face-to-face to hybrid where physical and virtual elements would be integrated seamlessly to ensure future professionals receive an accessible and quality education. The best TLCs practices for different teaching delivery methods and the latest scientific evidence correlating TLCs and hybrid learning will be discussed. Moreover, higher education students’ perceptions of educational quality and accessibility in hybrid contexts will be presented.
The results will help the scientific community better understand faculty’s competencies and students’ perceptions and learning needs within a hybrid learning environment. This, as a result, will help to improve the policies and practices of higher education when it comes to hybrid pedagogy.
