Many college students and professors will return to their physical campuses this fall, and it’s tempting to think things will return to “normal” when they do. But given the events of the past 15 months, what happens in the classroom come September is likely to be anything but normal.
In this week’s episode of The Key, Mays Imad, professor of pathophysiology and biomedical ethics and coordinator of the Teaching & Learning Center at Pima Community College, looks both back at what students and instructors experienced during the past year and ahead at how they can prepare to teach, learn and support each other this fall.
Imad, mixing her personal story with practical advice, draws on her writings for Inside Higher Ed, including her March 2020 column that has been viewed more than 800,000 times and a new essay with 13 steps educators can take to promote students’ mental health (and their own).
