Like many throughout the world, teachers and students have found themselves in the midst of a dangerous pandemic. As we learned more about the COVID-19 virus and the statistics started trickling in, we collectively tensed in shock. Overnight, as teachers and students we've been tasked to move, teach, and learn online (or, as some have called it, to do so "remotely")—an environment with which teachers and students often have little or no experience. Teachers have turned to email lists, social media, and the web to develop their online pedagogies, and students have scrambled to find out what this new environment will require and what the technology changes associated with it will mean. We've developed this archive to collect our teaching, learning, and personal experiences, shared and individual, so that we can understand this important moment in history. We expand on our reasons for creating this archive on our background information page.
This site is a place to tell your story, to share your experiences and insights with others, and to create an archive of materials that will provide a basis for reflecting on our collective teaching, learning, and personal experiences in the future. If you choose to contribute, you can share your name and institutional affiliation with others or keep that information private. You will be asked to complete an opening page that includes a consent agreement. On the second page of the story form, you can add your story to the archive. You can do so by using our web form or by uploading a file. If you choose to upload a file, please use our file template to guide your response.
