Educators Had to Get Creative During the Pandemic. Now, Universities Are Building a More Resilient Future
Universities around the world transitioned rapidly to emergency remote teaching during the pandemic. At Yale, we benefited from our longstanding focus on innovative pedagogical development, and our centralized resource for this work—the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning—enabled us to pivot successfully to remote teaching in March 2020. We have learned a great deal out of necessity since then, but one lesson stands out: the effective use of technology in teaching benefits students while also helping universities build institutional resilience.
