Hybrid Teaching Scenarios

Hybrid teaching describes the interplay of classical face-to-face and online teaching. A conceivable scenario is one in which some students are present in the lecture theatre/seminar room and others are connected live from home.

Such offers make sense and are necessary if not all students can or may be on site (e.g. due to quarantine, risk groups, stays abroad, etc.).

How to proceed:
To deliver a hybrid session, you will need the following basic equipment:
  • Internet connection and projector in the seminar room
  • Laptop, room microphone, webcam
  • Web conference room (BigBlueButton, Zoom, DFNConf)
Above all, a good audio transmission is essential. Video/slides/presentation are optional.
