The rapid move to online instruction is likely to have significant downstream effects, not only for educational environments but to standards of instruction. Major and minor accrediting bodies are now considering how their models will bend or be remade to accommodate new instructional realities. In this webinar, Cousins and Abdelaziz will discuss the findings of a rigorous year-long study into the implications of the COVID-19 crisis on accrediting bodies and, more generally, how these impacts will influence higher education for years to come.
