Fighting really hard for a return to plexiglass campuses

For those fighting for a return to in-person learning as normal, we may not be prepared for what we’re actually wishing for.

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, for those institutions who do open their traditional doors this fall, the isolation of the new in-person experience may be overwhelming.

Largely empty classrooms with students safely separated from each other. Divided by plexiglass. Disinfectant wipes ever present. Side-conversations with your peers almost impossible. Lecture environments are about the only workable solution.

The takeaway? Online may become a more “personal” option than in-person, especially if and when done well.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
