HawkMIX (MIX)

Brief Description: Mix of F2F and online instruction, through one of two officially scheduled options (check NEST to confirm how your class is scheduled and therefore represented to students; check OIT for room equipment).

HawkMIX Schedule Options

  1. HawkMIX/F2F & ASYNC: Specified contact hours scheduled in a classroom (ex: MR 11:15-12:30); the remainder of course work is done ASYNC online outside of class meetings.
  2. HawkMIX/F2F & SYNC: Specified contact hours scheduled in a classroom (ex: M 11:15-12:30); the remainder of weekly contact hours are scheduled as SYNC online (ex: R 11:15-12:30).

Faculty Role & Experience

  • Teach class sessions on campus following the schedule published in NEST.
  • Supplement on-campus sessions with online instruction (ASYNC or SYNC, or mix);
  • Determine schedule and rotation for students’ on-campus attendance, and;
  • Choose whether or not to live stream from campus and require online attendance of students who are not on campus. 
    • Classroom is dependent on scheduling request from Chair: standard classroom (or an enhanced classroom, where Zoom streaming is built into the room).
    • faculty in standard classrooms can request a streaming remote kit through their Dean’s Office, or for CHSS, through IT.

Student Role & Experience:

  • Rotate between on-campus and remote (via Zoom) attendance as determined and scheduled by the instructor, anticipating as much as 50% on-campus attendance.
  • Complete course activities as scheduled.
  • Will likely need access to a strong WI-FI and a computer with mic and camera for Zoom attendance and participation, if faculty require online synchronous attendance.  

F2F Session Ideas:

  • Flipped classroom.  Students read/view content before class, with class time reserved for conversation,  high-level engagement. Practice knowledge assimilation, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. See Vanderbilt website for examples.
  • Socratic dialogue for active learning of difficult concepts, dense readings, charged ideas, and applications of theories.
  • Technology-free discussion and conversation; F2F sessions facilitate students’ engagement with faculty and peers.
  • Hands-on learning: science labs, physical manipulations, music and arts, clinical skills practice, computer or other equipment-dependent instruction.
  • Working through mathematical or other problems, when faculty or peer assistance is invaluable in the process, at points of confusion.

Make sure you have your Canvas Course set up adequately. Using The Montclair Syllabus which should be pre-loaded into Canvas will help, but also review expectations at Canvas Universal Guidelines and take advantage of the Canvas checklist created by ITDS.  The checklist will help ensure you have a good handle on the most essential elements of Canvas.
