McBee IHE graduate Angie Royer led a Zoomtable on campus work forces, Adapting and Thriving in an Ever-changing World. The pandemic forced faculty and students to dive into remote learning, and it introduced many staff members and their supervisors to teleworking.
Royer shared emerging research and data to unpack how higher education institutions and other industries are incorporating lessons learned from the pandemic into increased work force flexibility. She also presented data on demographic differences in attitudes toward and experience with teleworking.
The subsequent lively discussion focused on technology equity among employees, impact on professional education and recruitment, and staff morale and retention. Students shared thoughts related to coursework, research, and how they experienced community among peers.
