Ed Glantz, Chris Gamrat, et al; EDUCAUSE Review

Five pandemic-introduced innovative teaching adaptations can improve student engagement in the next normal for higher education. The question now is, should any of these innovations and adaptations be retained to form the “next normal” in higher education? We know that disruption historically informs innovation. For an example from the pandemic, a US insurance agency has observed that employees can effectively work remotely and now plans to close six offices: 32 percent of employees (four times more than previously) will work from home.Footnote1 Educators should similarly look beyond the recent negative experiences to identify and cultivate worthy improvements. Here we suggest five teaching enhancements as possible candidates for continued acceptance.
