Online Learning at Public Institutions 2022: How COVID-19 Has Impacted Online Education

Wednesday, March 2, 2022
Webinar at 2 p.m. ET

This webinar is a forum to examine the findings of the soon-to-be released report Online Learning at Public Institutions 2022. Last fall, AASCU conducted a survey of provosts and chief academic officers from AASCU member campuses in partnership with Wiley Education Services. The survey was designed to understand the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on online learning at regional public institutions, as well as to identify other trends in programs, policies, and barriers the sector is experiencing. 

During this presentation, AASCU Vice President of Academic Innovation and Transformation Terry Brown, AASCU member provosts, and the Wiley research team will highlight and discuss key findings from the survey. The panel will share insights gleaned from qualitative interviews with survey participants and offer relevant recommendations as we move forward in the evolving landscape of higher ed. Speakers will address the growth of online programming over the past two years, review how members are reimagining student services post-COVID, and discuss the future of online learning at regional public colleges and universities.

This webinar is free to AASCU members.
