He will cover how resources evolved and adapted to the needs of students and how these transitions will further support the learning needs of students as we move forwards across different delivery methods of learning. He will also share examples of how faculty and staff will use what they learned in this process to better improve courses for students to push completion despite the challenges faced, and how we all emerged as a community of learners better than we entered. Email Student and Community Engagement for login details.
