BCCIE invites stakeholders from British Columbia's public post-secondary institutions for a discussion focusing on the experiences, challenges, and opportunities facing institutions in light of the impacts brought on by COVID-19. 

Topic areas will cover various issues identified by our recent survey that prioritized a number of concerns for the sector, including best practices in shifting to online delivery of academic programs, providing virtual student services, implications for fall intake, and the status of study abroad programs. We will look at recovery as a key focus of the session.
