Webinar description

Teaching working adults is different from teaching typical students. As companies and schools around the world have moved to remote instruction, many are grappling with questions of how to do it in the most effective way. Fortunately, some universities already have solid experience and lessons that they’re willing to share with groups that are navigating the transition.  

Join us for a live Q&A to hear experiences and perspectives across the United States, Europe, and Latin America on ways that institutions can pivot to remote instruction and what might come next.
