Hy-Flip Blend: Composing Hybrid Pedagogies On-the-fly

Abstract
What do you get when you start a campus-wide digital literacy initiative; add an inaugural Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Equity; and offer support to pilot Open Educational Resources to the First- and Second-Year Composition Director? A Composition curriculum grounded in Anti-Racist Assessment Ecologies (Innoue) and Open Pedagogy, offered in a hybrid/hyflex architecture using OER. A Hy-Flip Blend. This is the story of a small diversified private university on the edge: multivocal, involving players taking risks, collaborating, and experimenting, on-the-fly. The Library director sets the scene and introduces the characters: the securing of a multi-year digital literacy grant training 3 cohorts of faculty, full- and part-time, a hair before the pandemic began. The inaugural Center for Teaching and Learning Director/Digital Media Design Coordinator/Faculty offers the structural platform for the story where students and faculty seamlessly shift between synchronous and asynchronous, able to learn in real-time, in person or remote, anytime from anywhere. The Composition Director, early adopter of open pedagogy, anti-racist assessment, and digital literacy, invites Composition Instructors only two months before the Spring 2022 semester to collaborate and “write the story,” to vision, build, and pilot the curriculum. The Veteran Part-time Instructor explains just how piloting an OER text fits/not with the Hy-Flip Blend and importantly whether it works for Second-Year Composition students. Beginner through advanced participants will at every stage of the story use online polling to grasp WHAT/HOW the Hy-Flip Blend works, meet in breakouts to compose alternate endings to this unfinished story, and assess the work.
