Reflecting on and Transferring Lessons from Remote Teaching to Post-COVID-19 Classrooms at EKU

Teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic challenged faculty to critically reflect on and adapt pedagogical goals and approaches to meet demands of remote teaching and learning while ensuring that EKU students remained engaged.
