Higher Ed Best Practices for 2023
To better understand what higher ed’s best practices will look like in 2023, tracking the prominent trends in the space is essential. The leading trend in higher education is technology. Technology advancements will lead to best practices throughout the year, from mobile access to courses and course content to augmenting education through personalization.
JW Marshall and Leena Marie Saleh welcomed returning guest Darryl Krall, National Sales Manager for Panasonic Connect, back to Voices of E-Learning for a broader insider’s perspective on what the past couple of years of higher education looked like from a technology perspective, transformations due to the pandemic, and what higher ed best practices he sees in 2023.
“I’ve been in the AV industry for over twenty-five years, and I’ve always been engaged in the educational space,” Krall said. “And Panasonic’s been a great company and in classrooms for over fifty years. And you know, technology has changed, and classrooms have changed over those fifty years. Now, there’s a plethora of Panasonic solutions going into higher education to improve that student learning experience.” While the pandemic may be over, Krall said there is still a need and desire for hybrid classroom environments and a strong push for increased connectivity and AV solutions to enhance the learning experience.
Krall, Marshall, and Saleh discuss the following…
● The most significant shifts in technology and learning heading out of the pandemic and into 2023
● Higher ed best practices for 2023 that will utilize technology at its optimum
● Areas of higher education where technology is expanding its reach
“It’s interesting, from an e-sports perspective, which is another huge area of growth for Panasonic in higher education, that’s exploding,” Krall said. “They’re taking student unions or what was maybe an old computer lab and refreshing that technology in those areas to start e-sports programs. There’s no question that students entering higher education are more comfortable with the technology, and the faculty are catching up with that.”
