The hardest courses to teach online

What have the hardest courses to teach online been?

Reported by The Chronicle of Higher Education, many faculty have struggled with recreating the intimacy of the small discussion-based seminar online.

The first instinct may be to try and recreate this intimacy through live ZOOM classes. But many pedagogical experts believe that asynchronous models may be both more effective and inclusive for these types of courses. With occasional ZOOM meetings, but mostly relying on response and discussion taking place through online forums.

The takeaway? This is just another painful reminder that everything is new. That we may not know the best way to recreate what we had. That we may have to build the new thing all over again.

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
