How can we reimagine the traditional campus-based learning model to make higher education more affordable, flexible, and accessible?

For many higher education institutions, the pandemic has exacerbated the challenges they were already facing: the competition for students in a landscape of changing demographics, a drastically altered world of work, and the seemingly uncontrollable escalation of costs. Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) is redefining the future of higher education by developing new programs and degree pathways, scaling online and virtual learning platforms, reducing tuition to increase accessibility, and investing in their physical campus.

We are thrilled to have you join us for an extraordinary afternoon headlined by the visionary leader of the university, Dr. Paul LeBlanc and key leaders from the SNHU community who are tackling these challenges by radically reinventing places, platforms, and products for teaching and learning.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Inspire institutional change through the application of new paradigms that recreate and redefine the student experience.
  2. Discuss how to design frameworks that facilitate cross-institutional planning and lead to institutional transformation.
  3. Apply strategies for adapting, building, and scaling virtual teaching and learning platforms.
  4. Compare the benefits and challenges of remote versus in-person learning.
