INCLUSIVE CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT
Involve both remote and face-to-face students in the same teaching dynamic.
Explicitly take turns in focusing your attention on the video feeds on screen and then on the classroom or vice versa.
Speak loud and clear. Remind students to do the same, and summarize if necessary to support audio transmission.
Careful - if you turn to look at the screen, you are turning your back to EVERYBODY, students in class and remote students.
Role plays work very well in the hybrid classroom setting, and it's a powerful dynamic to connect face-to-face and remote students. You have different options to pair up students for role play:
Remote student (speaker view) - face-to-face student (stand up at the front of the room and look into the camera).
2 remote students (speaker view)
2 in class students (stand up at the front of the room)
It´s easy to bring in guest speakers virtually, as everything goes through Zoom! For the next case discussion, maybe you can bring an executive from the company you are analyzing?
IMPORTANT: Ask your program management team, ideally with 10 days notice, to provide you with an IE University guest account for your speaker.
PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE
Practice screen sharing in Zoom - share a powerpoint presentation, the whiteboard or a video clip.
Find a classroom and practice with your own materials and dynamics.
