COVID-19 Critical Response Webcast Series

Critical Response Workshops: Discussion-Based Trainings 

Navigate the Challenges Around Our Current Reality

The pandemic has caused institutions to pivot and adapt in unprecedented ways. If you’re like most, you have an ongoing need for spaces to connect with others, ask questions, and share ideas with the broader higher ed community.

These trainings have been specifically designed to provide you with that space. Through topical, discussion-centered sessions, you will hear from experts and your peers across the country about how they are navigating the new reality we find ourselves in. 

Here’s what participants had to say about recent trainings:

  • “Relevant, timely, practical content.”
  • “Enjoyed the content very much, and the interactive format which brought out a lot of great information from professionals in the field who really care!”
  • “Very informative! Practical advice. Solid examples to use at my institution.”

Sessions are being added regularly—please check back frequently to see the latest.

VIRTUAL CONFERENCES

96% of past attendees would recommend an Academic Impressions conference to a colleague. You’ve probably attended ours in the past – or wanted to. Now’s your chance. Our unique virtual conferences are free with your membership.

See What Our Attendees are Saying

"At first, I was skeptical that a virtual conference was capable of being both engaging and informational - but Academic Impressions has mastered it! The 3-day online event was structured in a creative way that all participants had multiple opportunities to interact with each other and the presenters. No one's questions went unheard or unanswered. Thank you for this great experience, it has changed my view of virtual conferences and I look forward to attending more in the future."

- Desiree Ford, Digital Communications Manager, Binghamton University

“The virtual conference has been amazing. The presenters have all been great and the information they’ve provided is going to help us better use our social media. Even though this conference had to be virtualized due to COVID-19, the online format has been set up in a way that we can all collaborate and share ideas. I’m very eager to take what I’ve learned back to campus and start implementing new ideas.”

- Chris Forde, Coordinator of Marketing & Public Information, Lincoln Trail College
