What Will ‘Back to School’ Look Like This Fall?

Verbit’s EduALL virtual summit will return for a ‘Back To School Edition‘ to explore what this year’s fall semesters may look like. With conflicting advice coming from leadership, peers, the government and others, many school leaders are left to decide whether they’ll be offering their fall semester courses fully online, in-person or if they should enlist a hybrid approach.

Join us as we engage hundreds of higher education professionals live again after a successful inaugural event in April. This virtual back to school focused event is complementary to attend and will take place on August 12th from 11am – 2pm EST.

Attendees will gain actionable advice to prepare them for the fall semester and ‘new normal’. We’ve confirmed leaders from schools like George Mason University, University of Florida, SUNY and more who are creatively responding to the current state of events and planning how to effectively engage their students despite all of the ongoing uncertainties.

The event on August 12th will address key takeaways and learnings from shifting all courses online due to the crisis. Speakers will address common challenges and opportunities which have emerged due to the pandemic, as well as how to address the mental health of students.

The event will cover:

  • How to prepare for the new academic year while the pandemic continues
  • Which technologies effectively fuel course interaction and student engagement
  • The opportunities and challenges of offering online learning via web conferencing
  • How higher education is likely to be impacted long term
  • How to help students transitioning back into classrooms and campuses

We’re recruited key higher-ed leaders to serve as session speakers, including disability and digital accessibility experts, such as Amanda Jackson of the University of Florida, Korey Singleton of George Mason University, Nazely Kurkjian of SUNY and Sherri Restauri of Coastal Carolina University.

The event will bring together university leadership, professors, disability department experts, instructional designers, IT professionals and others. Most universities are now bringing all of these individuals together to design plans for inclusive environments which serve the needs of all of today’s students as they learn in-person and remotely.
