The greatest health crisis of the 21st century has forced the shaping of education models, adapting to the new market demands and which guarantee both the safety and quality of the services provided. In other words, the current context has further increased the need to innovate in educational settings. Consequently, institutions and instructors need to strive to offer their students optimal learning opportunities. Hence, the hybrid model is presented as a feasible solution for the new educational environment. Hybrid settings are implemented in order to increase corporate resiliency and thus remain able to respond to the ever-changing market needs by offering affordances to customers in terms of efficacious and safe delivery, efficient use of resources, reliability, convenience, accessibility and ease of use for stakeholders. Previous studies suggest a significant and positive relationship between the adoption of a technological innovation, the innovation climate in organizations, and the use of ICT in innovative teaching.

Likewise, the comparative qualitative methodology (fsQCA) allows for a more accurate analysis of complex reality. The following study outlines the combination of conditions that are necessary and/or sufficient for the hybrid model to be successful in the educational context. For our study, and after the pertinent literature review, the outcome to be studied is the success of the hybrid model in education. There are five different conditions, which according to the literature are the main key drivers of a successful hybrid model. Therefore, the conditions are the following:
1) the development of a teaching and learning view,
2) the motivation to learn about the new pedagogy,
3) understanding the purpose of innovation,
4) reflecting upon their experiments with the new pedagogy and
5) being part of a professional learning community.

The combination of these five conditions lead to a certain extent to the success of the outcome, that is, the success of the hybrid model in an educational context. This methodology also allows the researcher to advance knowledge on the absence of the outcome. New avenues of research are consolidated with this study, especially in the current context where technological tools are presented as a solution in the educational sphere.
