The Hybrid-Flexible Learning Model

KCI’s MERIT program took a whole new approach to professional learning in Summer 2022 in large thanks to the support of our donors and advisors. In an effort to expand our impact to Southern California, we simultaneously hosted two in-person classrooms of nearly forty educators in both Los Altos Hills and Covina, CA via the HyFlex Learning Model.
The Hybrid-Flexible (or HyFlex) Learning Model combines both in-person and online instruction to create a unique experience for learners and instructors. For the #MERIT22 Cohort, that means that at times they learned via direct instruction over Zoom in one location, and completing activities in-person with other cohort members in another location. Our HyFlex Classroom up at Foothill College is equipped with amazing resources and tools to make this connectivity a reality.
We hope to offer more programs using the HyFlex Learning Model and expand KCI’s impact throughout the state. Stay tuned as the story unfolds!

I didn't come with anyone, but I left with everyone.
