Read the Duke Learning Innovation 2020 Impact Report

Normally we release an annual report over the summer summarizing our accomplishments of the previous academic year. The past year has been anything but normal. 

After a spring dedicated to helping Duke Kunshan and Duke transition to emergency remote teaching we quickly turned our attention to the faculty who were teaching their summer courses online, while preparing for the unknowns of the Fall semester. The effort was immense and left little time for reflection. 

Now, as we have recently passed the one year anniversary of transitioning to remote teaching, working and learning, we are able to take a moment to look back at the many ways our work was changed by the events of 2020, which we have documented in our 2020 Impact Report

Though the pandemic is not over and our work supporting Duke instructors will always continue, the promise of multiple effective vaccines, the eagerness of students and the dedication of our faculty give us hope for Duke’s post-pandemic future.
