Explore how to lead a large-scale transformation of virtual learning
Faculty members have grappled with the intricacies of learning-management systems, unfamiliar conferencing technologies, and new protocols for coursework and tests, often with scant instructional-support infrastructure. As colleges and universities of all types continue shifting to include more remote instruction, institutions need to prioritize continuity of learning.
This Chronicle report explores how institutions can take remote learning to the next level. How can academic leaders and faculty members rethink their face-to-face courses so that they are fully adaptable to an online environment? What is the best way to make an online-learning experience coherent, educationally meaningful, and attractive to potential and returning students? What is the science behind online learning? And what are the best ways to provide faculty development, evaluate remote courses, and ensure equity for all students?
This report also includes the findings of an original survey of faculty members and administrators about the experience of shifting to online learning and how well prepared institutions were for the move.
