Or, Tend To What Matters Because Nothing Bad Will Happen If Your "Now Online" Class Is Not Perfect
The 99 Problems Of Online Teaching
And The Winner Is?!
Our students are people. Some might be hacked off that they gotta go back to Mom and Pops when they'd rather share a single bed with their hot partner. Others have kids at home for three weeks while schools are shut. Still more do not have reliable internet and have to go to the library.
Stay The Course (Literally)
We Are Not The Jetsons
The Prize Is "I Fucking Did It"
It's Still Good!
Make fun of yourself. Admit to students that you've not done this before, you're breaking your own "rules" of perfection, you are learning, they are learning, and you're in it together. Do things like extend deadlines. Adjust expectations.
Make assignments easy to submit. Do you usually use the LMS? Then keep doing that. I use GoogleSuite with my students. We will keep doing this.
But So Many Ideas!
The keys here and now are modelling flexibility, understanding, and chillness.
The chill approach to this will permit you to go shopping for seniors who live nearby, shovel someone's driveway (I live in Canada, let me have this jab at March), communicate with students who are confused about these updated instructions because they're thinking about something else (like, will this affect my grad school application -- not a simple worry).
Stay well, academic family. My DMs are open if you need talked down, advice about approaches, opportunities, ideas, etc.
