Moderated by Byron Sheldrick (Guelph) on Thursday, August 13 at Noon MST

As the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the world, faculty and students at post-secondary institutions were faced with rapidly shifting to online spaces. Now, as most of us head into a fall semester fully online, we’re taking a pause to reflect on the events of the last several months. This roundtable features a group of faculty and students who will reflect on their experiences during the pandemic thus far. We will discuss the discourses of pandemic pedagogy that arose on social media, and the way in which the some of which the discourse framed students, faculty and teaching and learning. We will reflect on our experiences as students and faculty in the midst of the ‘pivot’ and we will share some of our lessons learned and tips for going forward.
