Brief Description of Event

This is a new webinar, designed with a CUNY-wide audience in mind.  During this webinar, we will explore how we can build on the body of knowledge and best practices gleaned over the last two decades of online education and look forward, applying lessons learned from the emergence of more recent technologies and the experience of teaching online during the pandemic. We will address such topics as how we can best continue to apply insights regarding course design, integration of multiple modalities, furthering of the engagement and retention of students, and more expert facilitation of online and hybrid learning. There will be ample time for interaction with the participants, as well as Q&A and discussion.
