Teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic challenged faculty to critically reflect on and adapt pedagogical goals and approaches to meet demands of remote teaching and learning while ensuring that EKU students remained engaged. What do we do with these lessons learned and how can we leverage this new knowledge, experience, and expertise to a post-COVID-19 classroom? 

Through a blend of panel presentations, individual reflection, small-group discussions, and large-group exchanges, we will distill lessons we learned as remote instructors and faculty, while considering what lessons and approaches are adaptable to the post-COVID-19 classroom, whether in person, online, or hybrid. Participants will take away an understanding of how to leverage the lessons learned while teaching during the pandemic to enrich their pedagogical toolkit and teaching philosophy.
