Why attend this EdTalk:

The current Pandemic has forced educational institutions into an unexpected situation. As higher education institutions plan to re-open for the 2020-2021 academic year, major questions remain: How do you prepare for the return of students, faculty and staff to your campus? Once they arrive, how will you manage your residence halls, dining halls, classrooms and offices, and serve your mission in a challenging fiscal environment? Will every class have to be an online class? HyFlex, Hybrid or Online? How do you leverage technology to make the new normal manageable?

Join the discussion as we explore ideas, proposals, practices of how to optimize the student teaching and learning experience in a pandemic environment & learn how do schools successfully transition into the new normal using technology to meet the current needs of students.
