Adapting your Learning Culture to a #SuddenlyRemote World
Thursday, August 20, 2020 • 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM (EDT)
While the shift from live to online learning has been making progress over the last few years, the digital classroom has remained a second choice for many learners and facilitators. When March 2020 forced businesses, schools and universities to go #SuddenlyRemote, online learning became the norm – whether we were ready for it or not.
In making that quick transition from live to online learning, we need to ask ourselves some key questions:
- How impactful is online learning?
- What are the key differences between in-person and online experiences?
- How can we ensure that learning sticks when the learner/teacher dynamics have been so radically altered?
Join us as we explore the answers to these questions and discuss how we, as leaders, can maximize the benefits of online learning in a #SuddenlyRemote world.
