Shelley Kurland, Ph.D., Dean, Virtual Campus, County College of Morris
Peter Turnamian, Superintendent, Rockaway Township School District

The pivot from traditional in-person teaching to emergency remote teaching was especially challenging for the K-12 sector as most of the school districts in New Jersey have had limited experience in the virtual environment. We will discuss the collaboration between K-8, high school regional school districts, and community college with the pivot to teaching and learning in a virtual environment.
- Discuss reasons to reach out to organizations and/or institutions to begin collaborations and/or partnerships
- Develop a list of potential collaborations and/or partnerships
- Consider the lessons learned and develop plans for emergency teaching and learning situations
