Webinar | Transformation in a Time of Crisis: Changing Course Venues in Midstream

In all our years of strategic planning, probably few of us have asked, What do we do with our courses if there is a pandemic in the middle of a semester? Yet here we are, experiencing one of the most all-encompassing shifts in higher education's history. This webinar will be a way for all of us to learn from each other about the strategies, decisions, implementation methods, and lessons learned from undertaking this huge task of moving our courses online in midstream. Community members from a range of institutional types will share their strategies, experiences, and lessons learned thus far. Much of the session will be devoted to discussion and dialogue that leverages our communal experience. If you are involved in postsecondary teaching and learning, this session is for you.


  • Learn about the approach representative institutions are taking
  • Share what your institution is doing and what you are learning
  • Hear from colleagues about what is working for them
