This best practices paper will discuss the process of refinements and adjustments made by the instructional design team during the implementation of a Synchromodal Learning Environment for multiple hybrid small group interactions and discussions. A synchromodal design is one in which face-to-face and online students meet simultaneously with instructors for a single, shared learning experience. This paper will briefly introduce the concept and role of technology navigator (Tech Nav) and discuss in particular the technology support, pre-course arrangements, and the pedagogical and technological considerations for design and implementation that took place before, during, and after the completion of the course.
