Institutions must innovate in response to post-pandemic changes: Opinion

April 18, 2022
Postsecondary institutions are being forced to quickly evolve in response to changes such as the Great Resignation and demands for remote work, writes Paul Basken. Basken describes how, in the United States, institutions have had to adapt rather than go back to the old “normal” due to labour volatility, worker demands about working conditions, and changes in student demands. US corporations are also embracing postsecondary training for their employees, which is a positive shift for institutions that are provide corporate trainingc. Institutions are also finding that students primarily missed their campus communities in the shift to online learning, and will have to adapt to ensure students still have access to online education after institutions resume in-person education.
