New perspectives: Supporting effective teaching with technology
As a result of the coronavirus, higher education underwent a cataclysmic upheaval, a major and previously unimaginable shift in teaching and learning modalities. We’ll reflect on our successes supporting this gargantuan transition, what we have learned as a result of this incredibly unique experience, and how we can best support faculty now and in the semesters to come. Bring your thoughts and questions for a rich discussion on our current moment in higher ed history.
