IT Fallout from the Emergency Move to Online Learning

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and institutions were faced with the sudden need to close campuses and move courses online, let’s face it: A lot of shortcuts were taken, bypassing traditional IT policies. Students, faculty and staff were using their personal devices to access university systems. They were signing up for new learning tools right and left. They were accessing the internet over open (and vulnerable) public WiFi. In this session, Brian Fodrey, CIO for Stevenson University, will discuss what institutions can do to rein in these IT security risks and better protect systems and data.


Online Learning Phase 2: Fine-Tuning Student Engagement for Equity

Now that many courses have made the jump from in-person to online, it’s time to make sure students of all demographics are actually being engaged and quality standards are being met. In this session, Dr. Jessica Rowland Williams, director of Every Learner Everywhere and former project director for the University Innovation Alliance’s Completion Grant Initiative, will share strategies for measuring student engagement and boosting outcomes with a focus on equity.

Now that the initial fires have been put out, institutions are faced with strategic planning for a fall semester in uncharted territory. Short term fixes need to transition to long-term solutions. In three hour-long editorial sessions, education and IT leaders will discuss the most critical considerations for managing higher ed’s “new normal” and engage attendees with a live Q&A.
