About "Evolution of eLearning"


When the statewide pandemic lockdown hit in March of 2020, the faculty and staff at Clark State College found themselves faced with the same challenge experienced by every other school in Ohio – how to pivot to exclusively virtual learning in only a matter of days. Although the school already had been working toward better e-learning solutions, the lockdown hastened that movement exponentially.

Through hard work and trial-and-error, Clark State progressed to an e-learning model that has been effective for faculty and, most importantly, for students. A crucial student success panel last fall provided important feedback to further advance the school’s remote learning efforts and paved the way for improvements that will change e-learning on campus forever.

SOCHE invites you to join us on Thursday, April 8, from 12-1 p.m. for “Evolution of eLearning,” a virtual lunch-and-learn featuring Cindra Phillips, Director for the Center of Teaching and Learning at Clark State. Cindra will share Clark State’s most valuable lessons from the sudden shift to remote instruction, adjustments that have happened each term since, and recommendations for how to provide students the best learning experience possible in a remote environment. Attendees will gain important strategies and techniques to add to their e-learning toolboxes for enhancing the student experience and will acquire important time-saving practices for designing e-learning curriculum.

Grab your lunch and join us for a session that will inspire you and could assist your institution in overcoming current e-learning challenges.
