Many institutions have scrambled to quickly transition to emergency remote teaching in light of the coronavirus pandemic. Students and faculty at campuses with well-established online degree programs were better equipped to handle the transition to shelter-in-place/safer at home directives, and online institutions were able to continue instruction with minimal disruption. But at more traditional institutions, the courses faculty designed for the spring term look a lot different than they did pre-COVID, and the transition to remote teaching has been challenging.

Join us for a panel discussion where leaders of online institutions and programs will share their guiding principles, best practices and helpful advice that those new to remote learning and instruction can apply this year and beyond.

Our panelists will share:

  • Advice for newcomers to distance learning and tips for faculty who have shifted their courses online
  • Best practices that institutions can use to better engage students online
  • Communication tips for faculty and staff, as remote work becomes the new norm
  • Their processes for assessing learning, faculty activity reporting, and capturing student feedback, and key metrics they monitor for their online programs
  • The impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on their online degree programs and broader institution, including faculty, staff, and student experiences

Our panelists will share how they are using Watermark’s solutions and other technology to support their online programs and streamline administrative responsibilities.
