A BHW about BHWs
BHW = Brief Hybrid Workshop
Brief intro to brief online and hybrid resources
for teaching, learning, faculty development.
Purpose & Audience: Introduce faculty members and other academic support professionals to what a BHW is and is not: especially that a BHW is not the same as any one of its essential elements. Participants learn a little about why, how, when to use BHWs - and when not. Participants want to learn more about BHWs and know at least one thing to do next. This is for those who do not have time to redesign courses or faculty development programs but want to improve them; who value participants' time too highly to risk a full class or meeting on something they have never tried before, and who want new ways to engage with students or faculty.
