The Evolving Conversation About Quality in Online Learning
During the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, online learning rose to prominence in a way that may have otherwise taken years (if not decades) to transpire. Digital forms of postsecondary education were suddenly thrust into the national conversation, as almost all educators and students moved to what became known as emergency remote instruction for at least several months.

In this webinar, you'll hear from special report author Kristi DePaul and Inside Higher Ed Editor Doug Lederman as they discuss the newly-released special report, “The Evolving Conversation About Quality in Online Learning,” which examines how the pandemic has reshaped both the practice and perceptions of online, hybrid and blended learning in postsecondary education.

You'll walk away better informed about:
• Changing student demands and expectations regarding online quality
• Growing institutional support and training for faculty members
• How quality is judged in virtual learning, and who does the judging
• Best practices for high-quality instruction, however it is delivered
