We are crossing the Rubicon

As I watch what is going on across higher education, I can’t help but think that this is a transformation moment. We are changing how education is delivered as we respond to the pandemic and these changes will not just go away and have everything return to normal. Every faculty member is going to be delivering education online. Every student is going to be receiving education online. And the resistance to online education is going to go away as a practical matter. Some may choose to return to face to face because they will prefer it. Some may choose more online models because they prefer it, but we’re going from a majority don’t use it to a majority do and I think we’re going to see the complexities increase for universities and colleges that are struggling and new possibilities open for those that can ride this wave.
