Episode 9 (29:36)

In this episode, Dr. Tammy Shelton helps us pull back the curtain in online learning to better understand what goes into it from a teacher's perspective, as well as what learners should expect and even demand from their education.  We will learn the difference between online and remote learning, hybrid versus high flex, and explore the future of higher education in its new normal. 

Tammy is teaming up with the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) to provide a webinar on effective remote and online teaching. This interview is a sneak peek of some of the topics Tammy and the panel will cover during the webinar. Learn more about the free webinar.
