Affordable Degrees-at-Scale Virtual Symposium

The recent COVID-19 pandemic has uprooted residential education programs across the country, and university campuses quickly pivoted to emergency remote course delivery. During this unprecedented time, many institutions turned to their leaders and experts of at-scale affordable learning to lead, coordinate, or contribute to this remote delivery.

What does at-scale mean now that we are all online? How do we support a horizontal scale versus vertical growth? How we do move forward with at-scale and affordable education in crisis?

Join Georgia Tech Professional Education for an intensive virtual conversation on the current- and future-state of at-scale programs.
