2020 was unpredictable. Whatever comes next, there’s some certainty with course delivery: online learning isn’t going anywhere. Join us on January 21 as we ask educators to share insights on the problems that loomed largest for instructors in 2020—and  critical strategies to address them in 2021. 

How to participate

Think of the chat as an open conversation or Q&A session that you can attend virtually. You’ll gain practical advice from experts and share your teaching stories with like-minded people. 

We’ll start by posting questions from the @tophat Twitter account at 12 PM ET the day of the chat. New questions will come every six minutes throughout the hour. 

Our panelists will answer questions using the #ProfChats hashtag but anyone can participate and respond using the hashtag.
