Post-Pandemic: How To Turn Everything We Learned From Virtual Labs Into A Hybrid Approach
Post-Pandemic: How To Turn Everything We Learned From Virtual Labs Into A Hybrid Approach To Engineering Education In the last six months, educators from around the world have had to reevaluate the ways they deliver their lectures and labs.
As new semesters have begun, many faculty and administration have transitioned from thinking of how to just sustain their courses to what is the optimal way to deliver experiences and leverage the new possibilities of distance and hybrid education.
Educators can now give students the ability to self-direct their lab activities in the comfort of their own home and seamlessly deploy that exploration on the physical system when they come back into the lab just like before the pandemic.
In this webinar, we will describe how you can do that and share how you can use this approach to start and interject the benefits of a hybrid education model into your course.
