YANA Panel | Scenario Planning: What Does Education Look Like in Fall 2020?

June 23, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

Scenario Planning: What Does Education Look Like in Fall 2020?

Tuesday, June 23, 2020 | 6:30pm EDT
Virtual Panel Discussion followed by Audience Q&A.
Led by Professor Barbara Biasi, Yale School of Management

COVID-19 has created complex, new challenges for educational nonprofits from grades K-12 through college. Issues such as teacher and student safety, health testing, privacy, the cost and effectiveness of eLearning, student extracurricular opportunities, transportation policies, supply chain logistics, and more need to be addressed.

Scenario thinking can help organizations better anticipate and adapt to dramatic changes, increase agility and resilience, and turn uncertainty into an advantage. 

Join us for a conversation to learn how educators are planning to address these challenges in the face of uncertainty. While no one has clear answers today, we know that Yale trains individuals to think creatively at the forefront of issues — the ideas presented and discussed will be a provocative conversation about what to expect and ways to respond.
