Where do we go from here? Tough questions facing online education in Saskatchewan

Covid has accelerated the prominence of online education. Its impacts raise questions related to the future of online learning at Saskatchewan universities. For our next OnEd session, we will hear from leaders in university administration and education discussing tough questions facing online education.

- How do we prepare for uncertainty while serving diverse student needs?

- Is this the time to significantly reduce the administrative workforce related to online education?

- Instead of Canadian universities competing for online students, should we consider collaboration?

- How will the role of in-person university education change in a world increasingly filled with online educational opportunities?

What are some ideas for new business models for online university education in Saskatchewan?

Panelists include:

• Dr. Ken Coates, Canada Research Chair in Regional Innovation and Professor, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy

• Dr. Louise Greenberg, Executive-in-Residence, Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, and former Deputy Minister of Advanced Education, Government of Saskatchewan (2012-2017)

• Dr. Nancy Turner, Director, Teaching and Learning Enhancement, University of Saskatchewan
