Lessons and Strategies for Educators on How to Thrive in a Redefined Post Pandemic World

Session Overview

This video was part of the July 2021 REMOTE: The Connected Faculty Summit

Chopped! What Stays and what goes and how do we move forward is the statement that drives this presentation. We will address the problem question: What has our current and evolving environment taught faculty, and what strategies can we deploy for faculty and student-friendly outcomes in blended classrooms.
