In response to the COVID-19 global pandemic, the University of Victoria implemented two multi-access classrooms enabling students to attend and participate in-person or remotely. In this session, we will describe the design and implementation of these classrooms and provide examples of the instructional approaches they enable. Finally, we will describe how instructors are supported to adopt and experiment with these spaces and discuss lessons learned over the past year. This session is applicable to administrators, instructors, and educational technology staff who are interested in developing, using, and supporting multi-access teaching spaces.
