Praxis: The Responsive & Expanding Classroom

Blog/vlog writers will address such questions as:

  • How does one pivot from teaching in a face-to-face classroom to teaching in a fully online classroom environment?
  • What issues arise in online classrooms during periods of national and global crisis and how might teachers handle them?
  • What has been learned about my students through teaching during crisis and how has this helped me to better meet their learning needs?
  • What are important considerations when designing courses and teaching in relation to questions of teaching during periods of crisis?
