Attend AACTE Leadership Academy August Session: Returning to Campus with New Opportunities

Join your colleagues at the first of three AACTE Leadership Academy Series sessions, “When We All Get to Together: Returning to Campus with New Opportunities” on Wednesday, August 11, 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET. This virtual session, facilitated by John Kuykendall, dean, School of Education at the University of Indianapolis and John Henning, dean of Monmouth University, will discuss transitioning to online learning in 2020 that required greater flexibility and knowledge around technology integration and the missed opportunity to see each other and work within campus office locations and meetings.

As you head into the upcoming academic year, what thoughts have you had about returning to campus? As many of you prepare to return to a more normalized academic year, you may be anxious about what to expect or wonder about possible new opportunities that may exist in your academic unit. The session will focus on developing a positive transition to in-person learning and creating new opportunities in the post-COVID environment. The presenters will share ways to approach the physical space along with the faculty and campus community. Attendees will participate in open discussions about their thoughts, feelings, and concerns and participate in breakout sessions for intimate dialogue about various campus approaches for a safe return.

Register today. Space is limited.
