The National Council for Continuing Education and Training (NCCET) will host the “Distance Learning Adaptation Forum - Beyond COVID-19” virtual conference May 18-21. The live, interactive video conference will feature a total of 16 topics, delivered across four days. The sessions will be presented by remote learning curriculum experts who will coach school administrators, department heads and faculty on best practices in higher education in a post-pandemic world. Registration for the conference is open to all NCCET members. Non-members may take advantage of the newly established Associate Member tier which requires no fee and can be established at nccet.org/membership. “Given our experience with distance learning technologies, we can be of immense assistance in addressing the immediate needs of our community, technical and junior college members,” said Howard Drake, president, NCCET.
Conference attendees will learn about converting live courses to robust online courses, how to conduct competency-based assessments online, marketing online workforce development classes, student engagement in remote teaching, choosing the right non-credit Learning Management Systems and much more. The complete conference schedule of events is available at nccet.org/events. “Since staff and faculty personnel in almost all of our community and junior colleges and technical schools are now working and teaching from home, we assembled a lineup of live webinars and case studies to coach our members on how to deliver their workforce development programs and other content online,” said Ed Harper, executive director, NCCET. Full conference tuition for all sixteen sessions is $350 for associate member schools and $95 for all other member schools. That conference tuition covers unrestricted access by registered school officials and is not a per person fee.
