After a demanding spring semester brought a forced pivot to online learning due to COVID-19, institutions spent months preparing for a fall full of unknowns. In April, Bay View Analytics, OLC, Cengage and four other leading learning organizations took the pulse of administrators and faculty from across the country. Responses from faculty and administrators revealed the urgent needs of higher ed. In August, the same group reached out again and over 500 institutions responded. Leaders from Bay View Analytics and the Online Learning Consortium (OLC) provide a comparison of the spring and summer results of this evolving new research and the provost at University of the Southwest shares the story of how his institution fostered a movement around digital learning that is driving innovation from the faculty on up. Participants will:
· Learn national trends in faculty preparation and development for fall 2020
· Discover what’s driving faculty confidence and optimism this fall
· Hear proven strategies for driving organizational innovation in higher ed
· Receive a copy of the full report covering both spring and summer survey results as soon as it is published.
Please join us for a webinar on Tuesday, 9.22 at 2:00 pm ET with Jeff Seaman, the lead researcher and Director of Bay View Analytics, Jennifer Mathes, CEO of the Online Learning Consortium (OLC), Ryan Tipton, Provost at University of the Southwest, and Nicole Johnson, the Research Director of the Canadian Digital Learning Research Association (CDLRA), which tracks the development of online and digital learning across Canada, and researcher with the CDLRA, Bat View Analytics, and Royal Roads University, who will analyze the results and answer questions from participants.
