Welcome & Falling Back Into The School Year Inclusively

The fall semester is fast approaching. How are university leaders preparing for this new academic calendar year while the COVID-19 pandemic continues? Are their school’s plans for all courses to be held online, offline or via a hybrid approach? How can they continue to make inclusivity top-of-mind?

How To Cope: Addressing Student Concerns

This fall will surely be one-of-a-kind. Students and faculty alike are facing learning environments new to most of us. What are the implications for our students? What steps can faculty take to better assist students, and themselves, for learning in this environment? Why should we care about accessibility now more than ever?

Key Learnings from Going Fully Online

The need to teach remotely presented challenges for schools and professors who had never taught in online environments. However, COVID-19 offered learnings to be applied to courses once the crisis ends. What advantages does online learning present? What technologies fuel student engagement that we should continue to utilize?

Rethinking Higher Education

Hear from an expert with decades of experience in competency-based program design, outcomes assessment, online program strategy and analytics. Yoshino will explore what the future of higher education will look like past the fall semester. The global health crisis has students, teachers and the general public rethinking the way they approach every facet of their lives. How will this transform higher-ed processes and offerings long term? Will more offerings be on-demand versus live? Will more technologies be embedded into the learning process, and how?
