In responding to the COVID-19 emergency, many of us in higher education found ourselves in a remarkable effort to prepare our institutions for emergency remote course delivery. Those of us at the forefront of at-scale learning have largely dealt with a “vertical” scale, where we built courses or programs that sustain a vertical growth of enrollments. Responding to this crisis on our campuses, on the other hand, entailed wide collaboration and coordination of not only technological capabilities but also human talent distributed across our institutions, to be able to quickly pivot to a “horizontal” scale of many students distributed over many courses, taught by many faculty. As leaders of at-scale affordable learning, we have impressive and complex technology infrastructures and the know-how distributed in our organizations on how to create programs that respond to a large need in the marketplace and achieve program affordability and financial sustainability and protect and promote our institutional brands. In many cases, it is these successes that caused our institutions to turn to our units to lead, coordinate, or contribute to the COVID-19 emergency delivery of courses. How did we fare? This panel session will bring together the authors from the free eBook Moving Horizontally: The New Dimensions of at-Scale Learning in the Time of COVID-19 to discuss learnings from the year of the pandemic to generate post-COVID strategies.
