Innovations in Organizational and Educational Development

Abstract

The field of digital and online learning has been evolving rapidly alongside developments in technology as well as changing models of educational practices and shifting interests in certifications, badges, and degrees from students. COVID-19 made a significant impact on this development, likely permanently changing the educational landscape. Early predictions in the COVID-19 landscape as early as the end of March 2020 (Govindarajan & Srivastava) suggested these changes to come, and more recently collected data from the year-review of COVID-19's impact on education in the U.S. and beyond provides us with ideas of what is to come-and perhaps, suggestions on how best to pivot and adapt to these changes as faculty, as instructional designers and academic support staff, in order to best address the changed landscape. Planned roundtable participants will consist of faculty and staff members serving in administrative positions, online learning departments, faculty development centers, information technology service centers, as well as faculty and students. The carefully curated selection of roundtable discussants all have expertise and critical experiences to share on the changed landscape of education from their own unique perspectives, and will provide a strong perspective on lessons learned, changing priorities, and recommendations on how to best move forward.
