  • 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.
