This symposium addresses issues related to teaching and learning in synchronous hybrid environments (previously synchromodal learning environments). Synchronous hybrid environments are technology-rich learning environments that enable online and face-to-face students to interact synchronously with each other as well as with the instructor in a shared learning experience (Bell, Sawaya, Cain, 2014). A number of research perspectives will be discussed, including issues of design, transactional distance, social presence, and more. Presenters in this symposium will also describe the theoretical and pragmatic ways in which synchronous hybrid classes can be supported and researched. The goal is to bring fresh ideas and first-hand experiences to bear on questions of learning and instruction in these exciting and complex pedagogical contexts.
