Event Details

Many business schools are facing the transition from emergency ‘remote learning’ adopted under COVID19 crisis conditions, to intentional blended learning experiences. Research and evidence indicate that learner and faculty engagement suffered greatly during the emergency remote format online. The attempt to replicate the in-person experience in an online environment with technology that was not built for learning resulted in disengaged students, feelings of isolation, and fatigue.

Instructors were struggling to both constantly learn new tools and use them effectively while combining a variety of digital tools to promote interaction and active learning. However, schools are now discovering that online learning enables the benefits of creating global, diverse, and engaged cohorts with data-rich environments that promote effective learning. As we look into the decade ahead, digital and blended education now has a far stronger claim to be a core component of Business School strategy.

In this webinar, we will explore a case study from the University of Nicosia and how they have been driving innovation in learning by designing and delivering cutting-edge programmes in blended, in-person, and online formats, using purpose-built technology for teaching and learning. The speakers will share their learnings and how the university is planning to enhance its reach and scale interactive learning experiences.
