Brief Abstract

Join us for our final virtual coffee talk. Grab a hot beverage and join us for an informal discussion and light networking as a connection between sessions. Carol Moody and Julie Myers, representing our sponsor SmarterServices, will lead off with a chat about academic continuity tools and equipping faculty, students, and their families for online learning.   

Due to COVID-19, higher education currently looks different. But faculty are still teaching and students are still learning. However, the tools they are now using have become more important than ever. In this session, we will discuss some of the challenges institutions, faculty, and students are facing and tools your school can use to meet those challenges. Let’s talk about the real issues and get some concrete ideas on how to address them going forward as our new normal arises. Planning for Academic Continuity is now a reality for most institutions and this session will increase your level of awareness of how teaching and learning in the new normal impacts students, teachers, and institutions.
