COVID-19: The Road to the New Normal
Education
Wednesday, March 10 at 8:30 a.m. MT
Watch the full episode

COVID-19 has profoundly reshaped education, from K-12 all the way up to colleges and universities. Many of the challenges have been numerous and well-publicized: children struggling to keep up with virtual learning, parents juggling childcare with their own jobs, teachers wary to return to classrooms until vaccines quell the virus. The central role that schools play in our society has perhaps never been in greater focus. Yet the pandemic may offer unexpected opportunities as well, ushering in new tools and structures that could help schools emerge stronger on the other side, better prepared to help their students develop both in person and online.

Be sure to tune in Wednesday, March 10 at 8:30 a.m. MT for a wide-ranging discussion on what the "new normal" for education will look like. We'll be joined by special guests Rebecca Holmes, President & CEO of the Colorado Education Initiative; Christie Imholt, District Policy Director in the Office of the Superintendent, ‎Aurora Public Schools; and Landon Pirius, Vice President for Organizational Effectiveness, Student Affairs, and Strategic Initiatives for the Colorado Community College System. Submit your questions in advance or live during the event for potential inclusion in the moderated Q&A discussion.

This free public webinar will be simulcast on the Institute's Facebook and YouTube channels and is a collaboration of the Colorado School of Public Health, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and the Institute for Science & Policy.
