Panic + ped·a·go·gy = pan·i·go·gy.I first learned of the word pan·i·go·gy, coined by Sean Michael Morris from the University of Colorado, in an NPR story about teaching online courses during the Coronavirus pandemic. But it really hit home on August 24th, the first day of the fall semester, at just the moment that both Zoom and Canvas went offline, setting off panicked technological improvising from faculty and students across the IU system.
Dear HUBI alumni,
I hope this newsletter finds you and your loved ones well during these trying times.
As is true for everyone, the current coronavirus pandemic created significant disruption for the campus in March of this year. I would like to acknowledge the students and faculty in their efforts to work through the disruption and finish up the spring semester using unfamiliar modes of instruction.
