Using innovative learning spaces, professors teach a class to students in a classroom, studio or lab and broadcast to students online at the same time. In courses delivered in the flexible format, students have a choice of coming to campus for an on-campus experience or learning remotely online.
The technology in the flexible learning enabled classrooms allows for in-person, synchronous online, and asynchronous online deliveries.
Benefits to students
The existing Technology Enhanced Classrooms (TEC) already have the required technology to deliver flexible learning. However, these are limited at each campus and costly to build. A simplified version of TEC has been identified. By using two core technologies from the TEC rooms – the Follow-Me auto tracking camera and Wireless wearable microphone, more than 20 classrooms are currently being configured to offer flexible delivery at King, Newnham, and Seneca@York campuses.
Flex 2.0, provides enhancements to the Flex 1.0 classrooms, where initially we had an auto-tracking camera and wireless lapel mic for the instructor to use while teaching in the classroom.
The additional technology added includes:
As we explore flexible delivery over the summer, we will be gathering feedback on the training from faculty and the flexible experiences from students and employees to inform what we do next. We are also continuing to research other forms of innovative technology for flexible teaching and learning.
