The post-COVID era will bring a new normal in learning as well as an opportunity to redefine, future-proof, and enhance education for students in hands-on programs. Experts in design and education, along with a diverse, multi-disciplinary student panel, will share their perspectives on the future of hands-on learning. A significant shift in the traditional modes of education will challenge institutions and educators. We’ll share strategies for meeting these challenges on your campus by designing hybrid spaces and programs that capture the interplay of on-campus experiences that are critical to student success.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Explore opportunities for re-thinking learning environment design to support the balance between online and in-person education.
  2. Compare various strategies for creating effective hybrid learning environments that foster collaboration and experimentation for disciplines that require hands-on learning.
  3. Justify the importance of digital agility for students, educators, and higher education institutions in today’s increasingly connected world.
  4. Explain how to plan for major shifts in technology that will drive new usage patterns in educational infrastructure and space as online learning evolves.
