Example scenario of a lecture for first-year students
Characterized by: a large group of students (often more than 50), minimal interactivity
- New knowledge (input) is taught during the synchronous phase.
- Implementation in a hybrid learning environment requires much time and effort (see Chapter 7.2).
- If writing on the board, this content must be provided on a tablet or visualizer when in a hybrid learning environment (remote access and/or recording of class for those students not present).
- It is recommended that a virtual office hour is offered to students not able to attend.
- The students are informed about the content covered in the synchronous and asynchronous phase and the resources available to them for independent study purposes (red line: “learning support”, see Chapter 5).
- Pro: As many first-year students as possible can attend in person and establish personal ties.
- Con: The technical implementation in the lecture rooms has no support (recording and/or remote connection). The office hour constitutes extra work.
