Teaching students simultaneously online and in-person grew in prominence during the transition back to campus in 2021-22. This event, hosted by UCL Arena, will provide an opportunity to hear from speakers from Les Roches Global Hospitality Education and Edinburgh Napier, alongside colleagues from UCL, about their experiences and perspectives. There will then be space to explore opportunities, barriers and enablers, as well as potential hybrid futures for teaching in HE (and, by implication, our wider working practices).  
 
UCL’s approach to hybrid teaching was to prioritise scale, and our ‘basic hybrid’ model represented a remarkable effort in both upgrading our tech and upskilling our staff and students. It afforded access to students unable to attend in person, and the techniques developed feature prominently in accessibility discourses. Such techniques have also woven their way into our everyday non-teaching meetings and activities, and calls for ongoing hybridity are prominent. 
 
This event is an opportunity to reflect on the incredible efforts and challenges of the past year and the implications for our future teaching – and working – practices.
