Hybrid teaching is the use of technology to facilitate learning sessions that accommodate both remote and in-person learners. As the demand for online and remote learning increases, the demand for versatile learning modality is expected to increase as well. Through this session, we aim to show how to use simple tools and best practices to make hybrid teaching a better experience that removes headaches for instructors and makes learning engaging for learners regardless of their location.
