COVID-19 has upended the day-to-day normalcy and short-term outlook for institutions of higher education across the country and around the world. Prospective students are uncertain about how to visit closed campuses; current students struggle to reframe their concept of classroom learning, and professors are forced to adapt to the unique challenges and limitations of videoconferencing technology.
In this new era of a global pandemic, how can colleges and universities adapt their classroom structures, recruitment approaches, and support mechanisms to continue to provide the high-quality educational experience that students, parents, and faculty expect? How can these institutions ensure that students remain a part of a community, even while the members of that community are kept at a physical distance?
In this webinar, we discuss:
- What our research team has learned about student and parent experiences in and expectations of a higher education environment
- What in-person institutions can learn from students’ online higher education classroom and admission experiences
- How colleges and universities can look to students, parents, and faculty to forge a path forward that is reflective of their actual needs and wants, and that helps them overcome the challenges presented by going to school in an online environment
