[Webinar] Transforming Teaching & Learning: Applying Lessons Learned in 2020

February 23, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST

Transforming Teaching & Learning: Applying Lessons Learned in 2020

The pandemic of 2020 sparked remarkable moments of human persistence. Instructional designers at centers for teaching and learning worked long hours while colleges and universities went into overdrive figuring out how to create online courses and prepare faculty and students to use them.

While no college or university is out of the woods yet, we are beginning to see institutions turn from emergency response to planning for sustained readiness. Online and hybrid classes have proven to be more than just a stop-gap measure in the face of the pandemic. Done right, these flexible modes of delivery can offer greater access to more learners.

Join LearningMate, and our featured panel of institutional experts, for a webinar where we will discuss what we learned during the pandemic that will transform our teaching and learning practices going forward.

Panelists will examine enabling faculty for large-scale projects, best practices for skill enforcement and practice, utilizing program-specific plans for course uplifts, and how higher education can position itself today to meet the global demands of the future. While these initiatives were undertaken during the COVID-19 crisis, the panelists will describe why these methodologies and digital resources have now become standard practice at their respective institutions.
