These are unprecedented times and it’s unclear whether the worst is behind us. A vast majority of schools, at every educational level, have ceased on-site programs for the remainder of the school year. Many schools are also hesitant to set any definite plans for fall 2020, with so much still uncertain. In the mean time, most public and private institutions have moved to online learning and alternative approaches, with varying levels of success.
What is the best thinking in online learning, and where are schools finding success?
How are institutions looking at structural change in order to stay viable and effective?
How are leaders thinking about the future intersection of K-12 and higher education?
How will fields that have in-person practicum requirements fulfill their training?
What are schools that rely on international students planning to do next school year?
Will job training reorient to high-demand fields on a national scale?
In the spirit of civil discourse and objective inquiry, the Ojai Chautauqua will present a free, moderated 1.5 hour online panel presentation with a group of leaders from K-12 public and private organizations, a regional university, and a K-12 religious home school. During the discussion there will also be ample opportunity for audience members to write in questions for the panelists to address. We invite you to join us for this critical conversation as we look at options for the future of education.
