HUMANIZING LEARNING - In an almost post-COVID world

We have been living through some strange times together. COVID has impacted higher education and the workforce dramatically. Students needs are very different than they were just a few years ago and the work we are being asked to do has been changing and often challenging. Let’s come together in this moment of shared human experience to celebrate what you have accomplished and what students have been able to do because of your dedication to their success. 



Whitney Kilgore is the Chief Academic Officer, and one of the cofounders at iDesign. iDesign is a well known provider of instructional design services that partners with universities to build, grow and support online and blended program offerings. Her focus on humanizing online learning and weaving care theory into that practice has paved the way for her to share her research, practice, and ideas with us at EduTech. 

Whitney has a PhD in Learning Technologies from the University of North Texas, a post-graduate certificate in Educational Technology Leadership from George Washington University, and holds a M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction from Texas A & M Corpus Christi and credits much of her success to her experience as a community college student in south Texas many, many years ago.

Keynote Presentation: 12noon - 1 p.m.
