On this @InVinoFab episode we bring you a timely conversation in light of the evolving situation and events due to the Coronavirus. We have a digital roundtable all about going remote, that is, what it is like to transition to remote teaching, learning, students support, and work in higher education with @ Katie__Linder, @jeffjacksonTX, & @bonni208. Based on the issues we are all facing to prepare, we decided to come together for a purpose to reflect and share about the state of things and how college and university institutions might prepare as they shutdown face-to-face operations and encourage everyone to move online. We talk about a range of plans, support, and strategies to be implemented and how we are “doing the best we can” as COVID-19 impacts our campus communities.
