Wiley Education Services, part of John Wiley and Sons Inc., has partnered with University of Wyoming (UW) to help bring the school’s courses online quickly and effectively for the spring 2021 semester. One of Wiley's largest fee-for-service agreements to date, the partnership will provide UW with instructional design and faculty support, as well as development and training services for their faculty as they look to convert in-person classes to online modalities.
The current landscape, amid COVID-19, has accelerated institutional focus on course design and faculty development. While 45% of faculty report an overall improved perception of online learning since the beginning of the pandemic, educators are still navigating the transition, according to Every Learner Everywhere and Tyton Partners. Wiley has been supporting its partners by meeting their immediate needs as it relates to course and faculty development, market research, and on-campus support, while also helping them plan for the long-term.
Founded in 1886, UW is a public institution with more than 9,000 undergraduate students in Laramie, Wyoming that offers nearly 200 areas of study.
The partnership follows on the heels of recent momentum for Wiley Education Services. With nearly 70 university partnerships, Wiley Education Services is supporting both the rapid shift to online, as well as meeting the steady demand from academic institutions to diversify their online offerings.
