UChicago Faculty and Instructor Reflections:

Video:

As we conclude autumn quarter and look forward to winter, it is an opportune time to think through lessons learned about remote and hybrid teaching during the pandemic. What strategies have proven successful? What challenges have we faced and how have we adapted? What new approaches might we incorporate for winter quarter and perhaps bring back to our teaching once we fully return to face-to-face instruction? A panel of faculty and instructors from various STEM disciplines will share their reflections on these and other questions, leading into an open discussion.
