Advice from Teaching and Learning Sources: Do Less

The move of classroom structure to an online format has pushed many of us from our comfort zone. As we navigate this new terrain, we wanted to share an article that offers advice to faculty in their pivot to online instruction.

Anya Kamenetz in the article “Panic-gogy: Teaching Online Classes During the Coronavirus Pandemic” encourages faculty to “do less,” a sentiment echoed by many teaching and learning sources. She encourages faculty to practice “panicgogy,” or critical compassion, by identifying “what’s going on, how you can operate within that, and how you can be compassionate in that [context].”
