Higher education will shape its future through its response to this critical moment: an unprecedented pandemic; rapidly-accelerating climate change; a mobile technology-enabled society; and critical issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion. As new values, core issues, and questions continue to emerge, institutions must face these challenges by weighing different impacts and shifting priorities. A panel of three institutions and a learning technologist will offer their diverse perspectives on these issues and how they're influencing the physical and virtual campus environment. Come join the dialogue and adopt an inquiry-based mindset to proactively plan for a more agile and resilient future campus.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Facilitate your own listening sessions with diverse campus stakeholders about how your physical campus will change in the future based on observations of current issues.
  2. Use strategies to help you navigate current issues as they apply to the future of your physical and virtual campus.
  3. Discuss how to use new emerging modes of engagement, e-learning, and technology-enabled research.
  4. Assess your existing on-campus and off-campus assets to prioritize and adapt campus real estate in response to current key issues.
