Digital Learning and Distance Education Definitions – Where there is clarity, confusion, and what matters to the students?

  • Timezone : US/Mountain
  • Date : March 31, 2023 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Meeting Type : Closer Conversation

In this month’s Closer Conversation, we will discuss some of the key insights from Defining “Distance Education” in Policy: Differences Among Federal, State, and Accreditation Agencies, a report from WCET and the WCET State Authorization Network, about the need for effective, student-centered policies around digital learning and distance education definitions. Members are encouraged to share what they are doing to provide clear definitions and expectations to students so they understand what will be required in terms of technology and in-person requirements.  

Registration is free and open to current WCET members but limited to the first 50 registrations. Participants are invited to interact via video and/or chat. Closer Conversations are not recorded. Resources shared during the Closer Conversation will be emailed to registrants following the event.
