Bringing Theory to Practice Resources:

  • Beth McMurtrie of the Chronicle of Higher Education published an excellent column, “Preparing for Emergency Online Teaching,” which includes links to a variety of resource guides issued by different universities.

  • Many of you know the work of the Hope Center at Temple University in documenting and supporting the material needs of college students. Here is a brief guide they’ve issued, “BEYOND THE FOOD PANTRY: Supporting #RealCollege Students During COVID19”.

  • Cathy Davidson and Christina Katopodis co-authored a terrific op-ed in Inside Higher Ed on best practices for engaged online teaching, “Transforming Your Online Teaching From Crisis to Community”.

  • Finally, “Hope Matters” is a wonderful column from this week’s Inside Higher Ed, by Pima Community College faculty member (and neuroscientist) Mays Imad; it offers ten strategies for supporting students’ well-being, overcoming their isolation, and engaging their fears.
