Invite leaders, faculty and staff across higher education for inspiring and practical discussions on:
- Welcoming Faculty and Students Back
- Meeting Students Where They Are, and
- Getting Even Better Prepared for Online and Hybrid Learning
The pandemic set students back. Despite heroic efforts to sustain courses online, we know that students’ lives were turned upside down. Given countless challenges, there are widespread concerns that students won’t be able to pick back up, meet course and program requirements, and earn their degree.
Creating a welcoming learning environment for both faculty and students is key to a strong start. Join us for a series of engaging virtual discussions designed to help administrators and faculty meet the unique challenges of this Fall semester.
Featured experts and faculty will provide practical teaching approaches that can be immediately put to use this fall semester to ensure every student feels welcome, can engage in their studies, and stays on a path to success.
