Professors are reporting a disconcerting level of disconnection among students, using words like “defeated,” “exhausted,” and “overwhelmed.” What’s more, some K-12 and college educators are worried about students’ loss of specific skills or knowledge areas important because of the disruption of the pandemic. What are the right ways for colleges and faculty members to re-engage students in learning?
The Chronicle will bring together leading practitioners to share how they have helped their institutions address pandemic-related learning loss in an coming virtual forum. The session will look at the key issues facing colleges today, and what practices are proving most effective, including:
- Checking in with students more often to see how they’re doing, focusing especially on disadvantaged students.
- The technology problems that can exacerbate disconnection.
- How to proactively reach students who are struggling.
