Schools Must Think Ahead and Beyond On-Campus Learning
The events of 2020 forced higher education five to ten years into the future. To survive, colleges and universities had to quickly transition to online teaching and learning—with uneven results:
- Lecture-style, one-way remote education without direct interaction between students, instructors and peers is an incomplete learning solution
- Students felt unhappy and shortchanged by their experiences, citing lack of engagement, isolation, IT issues and less time in class
- Hiring an online program management company (OPM) or scaling an internal team requires a lot of compromise and sacrifice
Colleges and universities must be prepared to successfully offer education that is responsive to the student in whatever modality they want or need.
