Will this fall’s virtual learning be better than spring’s?

Will this fall’s virtual learning be better than our student’s spring experience?

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, this will often depend on what the student’s institution was focused on this summer. Many institutions spent the last few months figuring out how to make in-person learning work by any means possible, even if that meant a very last-minute reversal as they admitted that a truly safe return was improbable due to their state’s recent case spikes.

Whereas, other institutions were focused on improving their online experience. Training their faculty on online best practice pedagogy. Upgrading their online learning technology capabilities. Developing and facilitating online opportunities for both peer-to-peer and faculty-student engagement.

The takeaway? Many students should experience a vastly improved online experience this fall, especially from those institutions who committed to delivering one.

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