Flex Teaching Training

Flex courses use technology-enhanced classrooms to allow students who are physically in the same room to connect with students joining remotely via videoconference. You also might be teaching face-to-face courses in Zoom-enabled classrooms, and it could be helpful to know how to use the Zoom capabilities.

Get ready for teaching in a Flex modality or Zoom+/Trimodal Room next quarter in three steps:

  1. Review the Flex Teaching resources on the Teaching Commons.
  2. Watch a recorded session to see how different instructors approach Flex teaching.
  3. Schedule a one-on-one, hands-on experience with the technologies in Zoom-enabled classrooms.
