Building the complete learning experience | Addressing changing expectations​

Wednesday 23 September 2020​, 4.00pm AEST – 30 Minutes + Q&A

 

Listening and responding to the needs of all involved in education is business critical.

Join us for this interactive Q&A with leaders across the sector as we dive into the changes being made to successfully navigate and move forward in these challenging times.

For some students the largely successful pivot to remote learning was “more fun, more empowering”, and they are saying to teachers “can we do things differently?” says the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. This is supported by Qualtrics research which shows 56% of educators say remote learning has been at least somewhat successful in allowing students to continue their academic growth.

While students are returning to the classroom, the situation has been changed forever - from complying with daily changes and implementing and communicating safety protocols today, through to a long-lasting shift in expectation among students, parents, and teachers.
