Inside Higher Ed Webcast: Curriculum and Assessment Amid COVID-19 and Beyond
Aug 12 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

During the coronavirus pandemic, colleges changed their methods of instruction — quickly. Many didn’t have plans in place, so instructors did the best they could in a matter of days. Now, they are preparing for the resumption of classes in the fall. Whether they are planning to teach in person, online or some combination, they have more time.

But with more time comes questions. Expectations are higher for the fall. What are students learning? How should they be assessed? Colleges are starting to consider these issues. The topics addressed in this webcast reflect the questions that colleges are asking — and the answers of some institutions.

Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman will lead a lively discussion on these topics on Wednesday, August 12th at 2:00 pm ET.

Call for Proposals: 2021 AERA Annual Meeting
Aug 14 all-day

The 2021 Annual Meeting theme is Accepting Educational Responsibility. This theme is about both schools and the larger social contexts in which schooling occurs. It invites AERA members and other Annual Meeting attendees to acknowledge the roles we play in sustaining an array of social and educational inequities. This theme invites those of us who teach in schools of education to accept greater responsibility for the inadequate preparation of educators for work in racially, ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse P–12 schools and postsecondary institutions.

Throughout the conference and beyond, colleagues will contemplate many meaningful questions. For instance, how can we individually and collectively demonstrate greater care about what happens in our society and in educational institutions? What evidence and expertise can we bring? How can we unite with practitioners, with scholars across other academic fields and disciplines, and with other citizens beyond academia to strategically address complex social and educational problems? Ultimately, this theme and its corresponding Annual Meeting activities aim to inspire evidence-based political actions and courageous, sustainable coalitions among citizen-scholars.

Cancelled – 42nd Annual EAIR Forum @ University College Cork, Ireland
Aug 20 – Aug 22 all-day

The theme of this year’s Forum is “Sustaining the Future of Higher Education.” The evolving societal, political and economic landscape has led to increased demands on higher education institutions to make their contribution and benefit to society more visible. European and national policy developments call for the university to embrace a transformation process and to be more proactive in strengthening our critical stance and role as a knowledge institution and champion for truth, evidence and science. There is a new emphasis on the need for higher education institutions to listen, learn and engage on issues of common concern; to cooperate and cohere with the European Higher Education Area; to welcome the UNESCO Global Convention on the Recognition of Higher Education Qualifications and to contribute to the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Please join us in Cork to invent the future of higher education together!
