A response to ‘HyFlex’ classes
Last spring CUNY announced a pilot program across a number of campuses in “HyFlex learning,” or courses that are both hybrid and flexible, in which students are given “modality” options to attend in person, remotely, or a hybrid of both. (e.g., synchronously or asynchronously).” HyFlex learning boasts that “students can move among available modalities from class session to session at their discretion.” Since the start of the pilot program, participating campuses have spent considerable sums from their federal stimulus monies to invest in technologies to support such teaching.
This year's enrollment and change period for NYC health insurance and supplemental plans ends November 30. During this period, active employees may change plans and/or add riders to current plans offered by the NYC Health Benefits Program. All changes must be made by contacting CUNY campus benefits officers. Health plan changes requested during the enrollment and change period will be effective January 1, 2022.
