12:30 - 2:00 pm ET - Effective Assessments for Variable Learning Environments

In this interactive session, we will consider the challenges associated with traditional course assessment methods, including high-stakes, proctored exams. Drawing from cognitive psychology and the learning sciences, we will emphasize the advantages of alternative methods that provide authentic assessments of student learning. Strategies for leading change, even among the most skeptical of our colleagues, will also be considered.

2:30 - 4:00 pm ET - Navigating the Digital Divide in the Age of Pandemics

As the COVID-19 pandemic has unfolded, the fault lines in student access to—and facility with—digital learning modes, content and technologies have become more apparent. Much of contemporary higher education is built on the assumption that we are now educating digital natives and that the application of digital technology will close achievement gaps in student success. Whether it is the use of increasingly sophisticated analytics, the adoption of adaptive learning technology, or the use of online content, universities and education technology companies have developed and adopted a wide range of tools designed to make learning possible anytime and anyplace. Yet we know that for many students we serve, broadband availability is uneven, access to adequate equipment may be limited, and a host of other life pressures may challenge the most motivated student. With increasing reliance on digital tools, how do we deliver on the promise of higher education to every qualified student, regardless of circumstances?

Panel:

  • Ed Feser, Provost and Executive Vice President, Oregon State University – Moderator
  • Joan Lorden, Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, University of North Carolina at Charlotte – Moderator
  • Jim Ptaszynski, Vice President for Digital Learning, University of North Carolina System Office

Panel:

  • Susan Poser, Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, University of Illinois at Chicago – Moderator
  • Jonathan Wickert, Provost, Iowa State University – Moderator
  • Meshea L. Poore, Vice President, Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, West Virginia University

3:30 - 5:00 PM ET - The Future of Higher Education Post-COVID-19

The COVID19 crisis that has upended virtually all elements of our society has certainly affected all of our campuses, and provosts have been intimately involved on their campuses in leading the response and immediate adjustments needed to have a successful spring and summer, and plan for a successful fall semester, in a much changed environment.  In this session we will try to take our view away from the immediate needs of the 2020-21 academic year, and have a robust discussion about how higher education will change over the next 5-10 years.  What will our faculty, our students, our campuses look like, what will they need to look like, and how do we expect the events of 2020 to accelerate the changes that we will all experience?

Panel:

  • Rick Miranda, Provost and Executive Vice President, Colorado State University - Moderator
  • Jennifer Cowley, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, University of North Texas
  • John O’Brien, President and CEO, EDUCAUSE
