The higher education landscape is always evolving. In the wake of the pandemic universities continue to move towards hybrid pedagogies, embracing flexible and inclusive new ways of blending face-to-face and online teaching. Download our new report and find out about the latest HyFlex trends that are shaping the European learning landscape – today and tomorrow.
Many believe that HyFlex promises more personalised learning experiences and the ability to cater for students’ diverse needs without limitations of physical location or time constraints. As our new report indicates, however, the HyFlex model also presents challenges for universities, including choosing the right equipment and managing technical requirements effectively.
Students and teachers across Europe are broadly supportive of HyFlex learning – but more than two thirds of institutions don’t have the technology to support it. Our state of learning report reveals a chasm between growing demand and a lack of preparedness for the adoption of HyFlex models across Europe. And while 71% of students and teachers are positive about HyFlex, 67% of audio visual (AV) professionals in higher education institutions say that technological improvement is needed before its benefits can be fully implemented and enjoyed in higher education institutions.
