Mr. Kyle Thompson will provide information on how IU has transitioned to remote education, speak a bit about how it was prepared in advance, in case the situation like this ever happen (which happened), and then how it is being implemented. What platforms are being used. How they are being done in a way of focusing on allowing students in global time zones to participate.
We will discuss more specifically about international student topics including how the US government has made temporary waivers of immigration requirements (such as the requirement that otherwise students have to be taking a minimum of in-person classes (not just online study) but has made a temporary waiver.
Where students are now. Who has stayed on campus and in the US. Who has left to complete remote classes online from other parts of the US or from their home countries.
How the university is maintaining other students’ services for international and all students while courses are being held remotely.
We are planning to discuss the following issues:
Digital technology in education before the coronavirus and now.
How education is organized now. What platforms are used for online learning? What online services do universities offer?
How do international students continue their studies? What kind of support do they get?
How to develop international partnerships between universities in modern conditions?
