With the prevalence of distance education in today's pandemic world, Remote Learning: Shifting to the New Normal addresses the need for and challenges of virtual learning. As scientists struggle to create a vaccine, campus leaders carefully weigh decisions to protect the health of their communities, offering limited or staggered onsite classes, hybrid approaches, and/or fully online courses. Whichever path, COVID-19 is on the uptick, predictions are worsening, and distance education is becoming a prolonged reality. Educational institutions are fighting to adapt to changing economics in an unprecedented time, and students may be questioning the benefits of deferred enrollment or their continuation of remote education. From the politics of online learning, to the re-imagining of teaching, this display encourages us to consider a new paradigm and leads us to question the future of higher education.
At the Everett News Cafe, you'll find a new book collection every few weeks that relates to current affairs, education, or learning environments. Remote Learning: Shifting to the New Normal is curated by Jennifer Govan, Senior Librarian, and designed by Sabarish Raghupathy, Software Engineer.
