    • 8:30-10:00 EST Welcome & Keynote Address (Sponsored by D2L): "COVID as a Catalyst for Positive Change" by JT Kostman, PhD AI Psychologist & CEO of ProtectedBy.AI

      2020 will likely be remembered for centuries as one of the most significant years in history. And it’s not over yet. A raging pandemic, a trade war with China, the most consequential Presidential election in history… The social and economic reverberations will likely continue for years. And in the wake of these forces, commercial and government entities are left facing the Darwinian decision to either adapt and evolve – or become extinct. Join us for a provocative conversation with Dr. JT Kostman to gain insight into the four areas that will make all the difference for your organization, and your career, over the coming months and years. Will you survive, perhaps even thrive – or go the way of the dinosaurs?

    • 10:30-Noon EST Panel Discussion (Sponsored by O'Donnell Learn): "Using SWOT Analysis for Transition to Online Learning During & After COVID 19" moderated by Ron L. Shamwell, MSW, M. Ed. @ Community College of Philadelphia & CEO Collegefairmagazine 

      "The COVID-19 pandemic has affected educational systems worldwide, leading to the near-total closures of schools, universities, colleges, and businesses." The transition to online learning has realigned the learning process to meet social distance policies to safeguard health. Administrations, department heads, faculty, and students have been met with a host of survival challenges. The distinguished panel, from Higher Ed & K12s, will analyze these challenges using a SWOT analysis to determine strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats caused by the pandemic. The objective of a SWOT analysis is to help develop a full awareness of all the factors involved in making a learning, program, or technology operational decision. The objective of this panel discussion is to help develop a full awareness of all the factors involved in making a successful online learning transition during and after COVID-19.

    • 12:30-2:00 EST Panel Discussion (Sponsored by Barco): "Implementing a Successful Technology Strategy for Remote Instruction & Work Continuity During COVID-19 & Beyond" moderated by Peter Calvert, Director of IT Strategic Planning @ West Chester University 

    Join West Chester University's Information Services & Technology unit and the Office of Digital Learning and Innovation, for an interactive panel discussion with staff members to learn how they worked collaboratively to support faculty, staff, and students as WCU transitioned to a remote teaching and learning/workforce environment during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Topics will include technology access, infrastructure, training, pedagogy, hyflex classrooms, and customer support and training. The panel will also discuss the various tools and resources utilized to pull it all together and share success stories and lessons learned on how they were able to continuously pivot, overcoming many obstacles along the way, while managing their teams to keep them motivated, engaged, and safe/healthy! 

    • 2:30-4:00 EST Panel Discussion (Sponsored by The Association of College & University Educators): "It's More Than Just a Checkbox: Maximizing Learning & Development Opportunities in the Virtual Workplace" moderated by Erica Wexler, President of Erica Wexler Transforms LLC 

      Training in today's fast-paced, diverse, virtual workplace needs to move beyond "checking off a box." To facilitate real change that sticks, professional development opportunities need to address the issues impacting people's ability to complete their day-to-day responsibilities, while also fostering a company culture where people engage around the work as a positive and collaborative force. During this highly interactive session, you'll gain concrete strategies to implement virtual learning programs that leverage people's strengths, elevate positive engagement and maximize performance and productivity. Our panel of multi-sector experts will share practical strategies gained through their years of knowledge, research and real-world experience designing effective, engaging training programs in the corporate environment. You'll also have an opportunity to put our panel in the "Hot Seat" and get your most pressing virtual engagement questions answered on-the-spot!. If you're interested in taking your professional development and training programs to the next level, this is the session for you! Considerations for K-12 schools and higher education systems preparing students for the 21st Century corporate workplace will be woven throughout the discussion, as well.
