Abstract

The primary aim of this exploratory research is to identify key factors affecting the creation of equitable learning experience for on-campus and online students under the synchronous hyflex teaching (SHT) mode. Drawing on the qualitative data provided by 15 hospitality and tourism instructors who had first-hand experience in SHT, instructors should strive to reduce distancing effect, maintain fairness and show empathy if they would like to create equitable learning experience for students under the SHT mode. To achieve these three goals, instructors must be particularly attentive to four areas: (1) Adaptive course design, (2) Adequate teaching facilities; (3) Sufficient training and familiarization; and (4) Mutual rapport. The mechanism to create equitable learning experience for students under the SHT mode was developed after synthesizing interviewees’ reflections. These current findings are expected to provide useful reference materials for educators in the field to optimize their teaching under this unique teaching mode.
