Monthly Webinars

Each month, the Florida Distance Learning Research Consortium holds a webinar covering distance learning research and other types of innovative research that may impact technology and learning within the State University System (SUS) of Florida.

Our webinars feature researchers from throughout the SUS of Florida. It is our hope that these webinars will allow the researchers in our great state to communicate about current research and collaborate on future research.

November Webinar: Research and Practice on HyFlex Learning in Higher Education


With the evolution of the pandemic and students’ learning needs, HyFlex teaching now becomes a new uphill that many instructors have to climb before Spring 2021 begins. While most instructors are settling in with online teaching this fall, a class with both face-to-face and online students at the same time poses many new challenges. In this webinar, Dr. Vanessa Dennen and Dr. Matthew Schmidt will discuss research and practice on HyFlex learning and relevance to the current pandemic situation. If you would like to attend, please use the registration form on this page.
