CT Virtual Summit to Consider Impact of the Remote Campus Experience

Campus Technology Distance Learning Summit

As colleges and universities navigate the ever-shifting challenges of higher education's "new normal," they are also looking ahead: How can the lessons learned from the pandemic redefine teaching and learning moving forward? And how can the technology decisions made today impact the future?

On Oct 20, the Campus Technology Distance Learning Summit will tackle those questions and more in a free, one-day virtual event. Join us for three thoughtful, hour-long editorial sessions, in which education and IT leaders share their ideas, experiences and outlook, and engage attendees with a live Q&A. On the agenda:

Session 1: How the Pandemic Gave IT a Seat at the Table
For information technology leaders in higher education, one silver lining of the pandemic has been the opportunity it has given IT to shine at a strategic level. In this panel discussion, CIOs will share how they have been able to get involved in pandemic response planning, fast-track IT projects, provide critical solutions to campus challenges, elevate the position of IT within institutional leadership, and more.

Session 2: Lessons Learned from Remote Teaching and Learning
At Boston University, faculty and students have been sharing their tech tools, tips and experiences with remote learning in a series of talks focused on strategies for creating better educational experiences online. In this session, Dr. Deborah Breen, director of BU's Center for Teaching and Learning, will talk about how her institution is building community around faculty best practices, as well as specific takeaways for engaging students remotely.

Session 3: Teaching Technology Trends: Remote Spring Data and Future Implications
What impact has the pandemic-induced remote spring had on teaching and learning technology usage trends in U.S. higher education, and what do 2020 tech patterns suggest about the student experience of the future? Richard Garrett, chief research officer at higher education research firm Eduventures, will share insights from the fifth Changing Landscape of Online Education (CHLOE) report, based on a unique survey of online learning leaders undertaken by Eduventures and Quality Matters. The presentation will consider which solutions are most used, the level of standardization within institutions, the extent of cloud adoption and more. We'll also examine long-term technology adoption trends based on data from Eduventures partner ListEDTech.

The Campus Technology Distance Learning Summit will take place online on Tuesday, Oct. 20 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. PT. The summit is produced by the staff of Campus Technology, made possible by the generous support of our event sponsor, Citrix. For more information and to register, visit the CT Summit site.
