Addressing equity and access while engaging students through ActiveFlex

Many traditional brick-and-mortar universities were seeking different opportunities to provide diverse delivery options for students to attend classes. Enter HyFlex. Brian Beatty defines HyFlex courses as those that “enable a flexible participation policy for students whereby students may choose to attend face-to-face synchronous class sessions or complete course learning activities online without physically attending class.” After our HyFlex pilot, we redesigned courses to address equity and access while actively engaging students. After some trial and error we developed ActiveFlex, which built an active learning component to the asynchronous online course and gave students an equivalent experience regardless of their attendance mode.
