VCC Teaching, Learning, and Research Symposium
February 25 & 26, 2021
Our first combined Teaching & Learning Symposium and Research Day event will explore the following theme:
“Change Is the Only Constant: Sharing Experiences of Teaching, Learning, and Research in Times of Disruption.”
The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a rapid, wide-scale shift in education. Instructors and students have had to adapt to teaching and learning in what is now an almost fully-online medium, and researchers and research participants have had to adapt to studies held within a virtual environment. Ongoing changes made in response to COVID-19 and the “new normal” left in its wake force a rethinking of assessment, experiential learning, quality assurance, student/participant engagement and access, and community building. Meanwhile, the resilience and wellness of those who work and learn in higher education face emergent risks given the new reality created by the pandemic.
