Associate Professor and Chair University of Washington
As the health risks associated with COVID-19 continue to impact the delivery of education at all levels, we find ourselves approaching a full year of remote learning and instruction. What were once short-term responses have now been refined through experimentation, lessons learned, integrating of new technologies for teaching and communication, and feedback from students. During this time, there has also been a growing awareness of inequalities within our society and profession. This session will be a peer discussion that provides an opportunity to discuss successes and the potential for a long-term rollout of a curriculum that embraces opportunities for in-person and remote learning while broadening our reach.
This is a discussion format, so please come prepared to share from your experiences and observations. Questions to consider include:
What are some current successes in your remote teaching? Are there changes you might not have considered before shifting to remote learning? How might remote learning techniques carry forward into an in-person learning environment?
What are the potential shifts in the future of practice as a result of remote working and how does that respond to the future of the curriculum? Will there be a permanent transformation of the curriculum/approach?
With recent discussions about access to education, what is the potential for a shift to an apprenticeship approach within firms, and what is the role of the university within that model? How might remote learning factor into that scenario?
How does accreditation fit into this model?
