The COVID-19 global pandemic necessitated sudden, large scale transformations in higher education, as many institutions and programs were forced to leverage their existing technological resources and expertise to manage a rapid shift to delivering education in an online-only environment. In the short term, the shift required creativity, quick thinking, and in many cases, adaptations that were less than ideal. In wake of that semester, the conversation has now shifted to how to best manage sustained transformation of higher education in the face of these new realities. This, too, will take creativity and leveraging of technology and expertise. This alternative event represents an interactive conversation with information science education professionals about transformation experiences, the leveraging of new technologies, and the future of information science education. This event will also be the first episode of SIG ED’s new podcast, asistED: The Information Science Education Podcast, itself developed as a creative new way to offer a forum for conversation, connection, and continuing professional development focused on issues related to information science education. This event will be recorded for later download.
