IFOTS 2020 (International Forum of Teaching and Studies Journal)

1st Annual IFOTS Symposium

Online Teaching & Learning: Challenges and Solutions

Friday, September 25th, 2020
12 Noon to 6 PM Eastern Time Zone - USA

The pandemic has affected traditional education settings dramatically, catching students, administrators, and teachers off-guard and losing many to the potential pitfalls of this format within which to now deliver instruction and learn. The IFOTS Symposium is bringing together educators and students from around the globe to address the effects of the pandemic brought about by the SARS-Cov2 virus and its consequences for educators and students.

The IFOTS Symposium offers a platform for stakeholders in this changed environment to discuss challenges, solutions, and ideas, and to exchange results based on their experiences in this worldwide rise of e-learning.

American Scholars Press invites you to bring your stories about online teaching and learning ---successful, unsuccessful, good or bad--- and your experiences and thoughts about if and how the adoption of online learning will continue to exist post-pandemic. The symposium brings together practitioners and thinkers, researchers and students to identify needs and solutions that can best prepare our institutions and stakeholders for this changed and changing environment. The IFOTS Symposium is a ‘commons’ for considering international perspectives and local experiences in order to synthesize contextually appropriate solutions.
