With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic this spring, schools across the US were closed suddenly and instruction shifted to a virtual model for millions of students. The disruption caused by COVID-19 will have long-lasting repercussions beyond this school year. With that in mind, CCC will present a virtual Town Hall on Tuesday, 29 September at 10:00 EDT/15:00 BST/16:00 CEST, bringing together publishing leaders and education solutions providers to share their lesson plans for digital transformation in a COVID-19 world.
“The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is widespread, but is especially crippling to the academic community,” said Emily Sheahan, Vice President & Managing Director, CCC. “Schools are struggling with exactly how to begin the new academic year given conflicting pressure from scientists, government, community leaders, families, staff, unions, faculty and students. They need flexible, creative solutions that allow students, families and teachers to adapt to changing requirements with minimal interruption to the learning experience.”
Industry experts participating in the virtual Town Hall include:
• Karthik Krishnan, CEO, Britannica Group
• Beth Miller, Chief Knowledge Officer, EL Education, Inc.
• Paul Randall, Solutions Product Marketing Manager, HP
• Andrew Campana, Director, Business Development, CCC
