Thanks for this Ernesto. What I’m trying to gather right now are less strategies for moving online and more assignment/strategies/assessment that use digital pedagogy and general digital humanities approaches. 

I think right now it’s to share our discipline specific examples that we’re using, online or otherwise. 

I’ve set up a form to fill out and I’d love for this community to contribute. 


Thanks everyone!

It seems to me the novel coronavirus pandemic is giving us some very practical examples of how poorly prepared higher education institutions remain culturally (socially) and technologically to respond to situations that challenge the privilege of physical, real time presence. It will also highlight differences in infrastructural development across institutions and countries, social and academic customs, and issues around access, mobility, engagement, pace of change.
