Instructional Design Summit - Part 3: Moving Students, Faculty, Courses, and Programs From Remote To Online
Concurrent Session 6
In 2020, faculty quickly shifted to a remote learning model. Instructional Designers helped support and manage this quick transition, but how will the ID field manage the faculty, student, course, and program transformation from remote to online learning? During this panel, we will discuss how to plan for a future post-pandemic.
2020 was a difficult year in Higher Education. For the first time, institutions shifted all courses to emergency remote learning. Faculty and students who were resistant to online modalities found themselves using Learning Management Systems and synchronous lecture software for the very first time. Now that many campuses are returning to face-to-face, blended, and hybrid courses, how will Instructional Design teams help manage recently set expectations for what “teaching online” means.
During this panel, experts in the Instructional Design field will discuss the following:
- How are you currently communicating the differences between online and remote courses to faculty and students?
- Did remote teaching and learning increase or decrease interest in synchronous or asynchronous learning on your campus?
- How has the experience with remote learning impacted your processes for course development or course quality reviews?
Come explore with our panelists on how they plan to adapt and translate their expertise to solve these problems on their campus and ensure that we are supporting a shift to teaching "online"...a shift which requires different conversations, training, support, and an attention to quality in a different way than "remote" teaching has required of our community.
