Invitation Letter for a Hy-flex Training on Ensuring Student Engagement in a Technology-Enhanced Limited Face-to-Face Instruction

Dear Colleagues:

Greetings from Silliman University, the campus by the sea!

The University is hosting a 16-week hy-flex course for teachers, librarians, and student-teachers, a project funded by the Private Education Assistance Committee (PEAC) under the Assistance to Program and Initiatives to Reform Education (ASPIRE) through the Association of Christian Schools, Colleges and Universities (ACSCU)

The course aims to equip teachers with the necessary skills in technology-enhanced limited face-to-face instruction. Participants will be immersed in any modality of limited face-to-face instruction such as blended, hybrid, and hy-flex learning that they can replicate in their own delivery.

Please refer to the attached document for the details of the course.

In view thereof, may we invite your school to send participants for the hy-flex training? Please send at least five teachers for the training. There is no limit on the maximum number of participants. Please tell them to register at this link https://tinyurl.com/SOUL-ASPIRE-ACSCU22.

For more information, please contact the project leader, Dr. Dave E. Marcial, at edtech@su.edu.ph.

We look forward to your positive response and support.

In service,


BETTY CERNOL MCCANN, Ph.D
