Hybrid mode

Here you will find an overview of possible options for limited campus activities. Synchronous hybrid mode and rotation mode present simplified formats which of course can be combined. Possible examples are:

  • Synchronous online units are held via MS Teams for the entire group (e.g. to teach basic knowledge) and are complemented with sessions in small groups on campus.
  • Parts of the course are held in the synchronous hybrid mode (meaning in presence, but simultanously being streamed), but additional sessions in small groups are offered to deepen the contents.
Synchronous hybrid mode Rotation mode
Description The course will be held in presence for a part of the participants. At the same time the course is streamed for all students who cannot be on campus. The attendance time of the course is divided between two or more student groups so that the lecturer holds all units, but changing student groups are present in the classroom. Students work independently on content that cannot be covered in class.
Suitable for...
  • Input-heavy courses
  • Settings with little interaction between teachers and students
  • No or just a few scheduled group activities
  • Application-related contents and tasks
  • Settings that require a lot of exchange amongst students or between teachers and students
  • Courses for which self-study materials and videos are already available and / or self-study phases are scheduled
Pros
  • Time saving especially for input-heavy designs
  • Videos can be edited afterwards and used for long-term purposes.
  • Face-to-face exchange between students and / or between students and lecturers is possible
  • Sustainable course planning: An Inverted Classroom / Flipped Classroom design can be implemented in a very similar way in future "normal" semesters
Cons
  • Only possible with streaming equipment
  • Solid internet connection required on the part of the students
  • The presence of students in the classroom must be organized (How many students are allowed to physically attend the course?)
  • The preparation of well-structured self-study materials is time-consuming.
