Leadership Network Symposium - The Changing Landscape of Online Education (CHLOE): Empirical Findings for Digital Learning Leaders
The Changing Landscape of Online Education (CHLOE) studies have resulted in in-depth yearly reports, beginning in 2016 - with two during 2020, including a special report on the pivot to remote teaching. The CHLOE research studies, of which OLC is a Gold sponsor, have become a bellwether guide for college and university leaders over the past 5 years. They have provided insight about the current state of online education in US higher education with topics running the gamut from the day-to-day management of online learning to student, faculty, and staff support to quality assurance to strategic planning. They also serve as a guide for potential benchmarking information for those leaders on point for online learning for their institutions, referred to as Chief Online Officers (COOs) in the CHLOE studies.
The pandemic has prompted some changes in the way institutions are managing online learning and accelerated initiatives that had begun but had not yet taken hold. As we move forward with the current of the pandemic ebbing and flowing, it is crucial to have a good context for planning and managing online learning. What are the trends for online education and what do Chief Online Officers need to know – and what do they need to plan for so that their intuition can take advantage of opportunities? This session will share predictions for higher education as well as highlight key areas for COOs to focus on – including faculty development, student support, and institutional readiness. Attendees should develop a sense of how their institution might compare to US higher education overall and give ideas of how other institutions are approaching key decisions related to strategy and operations. This rich and thought-provoking session will conclude with an open discussion on future CHLOE studies and provide the most recent full report as a resource for participants to reference.
We encourage you to download the CHLOE 7 (Changing Landscape of Online Education) Report in advance.
This session is available only to registered attendees of the Leadership Network Symposium.
