Postsecondary Post-COVID

Transformative Effects of the Coronavirus

60-180 min keynote presentation or workshop

Postsecondary Post-COVID

Pandemics have disrupted higher ed in centuries past, evacuating campuses and challenging institutional operations – but ultimately, the academy has survived and emerged transformed by the experience. The Great Pandemic of 2020 has stripped away many rituals and traditional trappings of campus life, but it has also cleared our calendars and our minds, reinvigorated our pedagogy, and injected more compassion into our policies. This moment is an unprecedented opportunity to rethink our business models and services, and reinvent our institutions.

In this fast-paced session, Canada’s leading higher ed futurist Ken Steele will share an overview of the obvious and more subtle impacts of the COVID19 crisis, and the ways it will shape the future of our campuses for years to come.

Ken Steele is Canada’s leading higher education monitor and futurist. He co-founded Academica Group, created the Academica Top Ten, manages Eduvation Inc, co-authored Canada’s first book on enrolment management, publishes a daily email newsbrief the Eduvation Insider, and hosts a weekly webcast, Ten with Ken, that reaches thousands of subscribers on a dozen platforms. Ken brings his unique perspective and insight to a broad range of audiences, from faculty and instructors, boards and senior administration, to information technology staff, concerned parents, and Canada’s most powerful corporate CEOs.


Ken has been blogging extensively on the COVID19 pandemic. Here are some relevant examples, for a sense of Ken’s approach and as potential pre-reading for participants:
