At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, classes at business schools went online almost immediately due to the restrictions for meeting in person. Some institutions transitioned smoothly as they already had experience in digital delivery, while others had to learn on the spot.
With the new normal, changes in the preferences and perceptions of students and companies have become evident. Online delivery has become pervasive and permeates all kinds of programmes and courses, as it has proved to be effective in multiple circumstances, offering new learning opportunities and providing increased flexibility in the learning process than traditional formats. However, online learning can be challenging for traditional programme designers, teachers and instructors, who must be trained in new teaching and communication techniques, and the situation is aggravated by the fact that newer generations of students have a different approach to using digital technology.
This workshop will be about how teaching and learning techniques have evolved and will showcase some successful examples of institutions in Latin America and Spain that have put the enhancement of online delivery at the centre of their strategy. This workshop is of particular use for programme coordinators/managers who are responsible for the design of their programmes, as well as faculty who teach on blended or online programmes.
