Learning environments and campus structures are undergoing rapid adaptation. Your plans for your spring and summer courses have been upended. But human cognition and the essentials of how learning works haven’t changed. As you work to maintain quality in the midst of rapid course redesign, don’t let the perfect get in the way of the good. Indeed, there may even be opportunities to reflect on how the challenges you face may actually help illuminate equity issues that could lead to improved learning for all your students. Join us for a conversation about teaching, assignments, learning, and assessment processes with an eye toward maintaining quality and equity in online environments.
