Detailed Agenda

Topic:

After the initial shock of the Remote Spring, many organizations were thinking, How do we replace the normally in person experiences in labs, clinics, music and dance halls with an equally rich online version? How do we identify the issues and solve them proactively?  Here are 4-6 stories from different campuses to discuss an aspect of how they managed to meet the needs of their campus.  Each school will talk for 10-15 minutes followed by group discussion.
