As colleges and universities pivot quickly towards online learning, buzzwords like "social distancing" and "self-isolation" have emerged as part of a new language of loneliness.
The new reality of higher education has also brought a new set of challenges to educators and students: How do you facilitate a social-academic community when you can’t see anyone face-to-face?
During this session, we will cover a variety of topics to help educators uncover the human element of remote learning.
