The purpose of our poster session is to share with participants how the HyperDoc Instructional Design model was used for online and blended learning in Higher Education. The participants will have access to our created HyperDocs and will also be directed to the Teachers Give Teachers website for other free HyperDocs. During this poster session, we will highlight the research that went into designing the HyperDocs. We will also highlight the transformational learning and data that was collected from graduate students who used the HyperDocs in their learning. Our focus will be on why HyperDocs should be made, how they can be found or made, and what the steps are for successfully creating and sharing a HyperDoc in a blended and online learning environment.
At the end of our session, participants will be able to:
~Identify how student learning is differentiated through the use of HyperDocs.
~Describe how HyperDocs can support active and deeper learning.
~Identify how HyperDocs can be used in an Online and Blended learning environment.
~Identify how HyperDocs support personalized learning and student agency in the classroom.
~Describe how HyperDocs could transform their classroom.
