Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, institutions have been making pedagogical changes that will impact the long-term future of higher education. This session will explore how institutions can move away from “crisis teaching” and towards a mindfully-redesigned and thoughtfully-delivered curriculum spanning a range of models, from virtual to hybrid to in-person learning. Institutions must quickly adapt their curricula in order to provide quality education in a post-COVID era. Come learn how you can prepare your institution to meet current needs and future challenges in learning through sharing ideas and experiences with your peers.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Describe the range of virtual, hybrid, and in-person curriculum models institutions are testing and implementing in Fall 2020.
  2. Discuss options for remote and in-person learning and how to re-shape physical learning environments to adjust for new curricula.
  3. Identify ways in which institutions can maintain a sense of culture and community both virtually and in safe campus spaces during a pandemic.
  4. Explain how institutions can adapt their curricula in response to COVID in a way that will benefit higher education long term.
