Goals for Our Future State
Asked to describe the goals and elements of hybrid learning that they would like to see 10 years from now, panelists collaboratively constructed their preferred future for institutions, students, instructors, and staff.
Panelists generated a list of actions for the teaching and learning community to arrive at this preferred future in 10 years. Every institution has its own unique needs and challenges, but the community as a whole can work together to effect change. From small, local actions to large, international collaborations, everyone has an opportunity to contribute.
