That’s a Wrap on the 2020 Digital Education Summit
Going into this year’s event, we knew things would be a little different. Instead of gathering in-person for our ninth annual event, we came together virtually for an event like no other held before. Leveraging Cvent’s new Virtual Attendee Hub, attendees accessed #DES20 through the event website and mobile app, interacting with presenters and fellow attendees through breakout sessions and receiving answers to their questions’ through live Q&A.
To kick #DES20 off, Dr. Mike Wesch gave an inspiring keynote presentation about how his son helped him identify the core elements of learning, how they re-invigorated his teaching, and how they became the foundation for his COVID-era course designs. From there, attendees broke out to attend one of the 20 sessions given by presenters from across the globe.
