Here's How - Be Flexible
Providing a degree of flexibility in your online or hybrid course is important for many reasons. In other modules, such as Learning Styles and Legal Issues, we discuss the importance of presenting information in multiple ways for students and provide numerous strategies on how to proceed.
- Creating a sense of flexibility in how you deliver content in your course will help target a variety of learning styles and multiple intelligences for students.
- Providing flexibility in access to content may also help students with disabilities.
Presenting content in a myriad of ways is just one way to exercise flexibility. Allowing students latitude in terms of how they demonstrate mastery of the content through projects and assignments is another consideration.
For example, try to provide students with a choice of options for their assignments. This is especially important for adult learners.
