Toward a Pedagogy from Crisis: Adaptive Teaching and Learning at Bowling Green State University During COVID-19

FAIN: AH-275583-20

Training and development activities to retain contingent faculty, fund graduate student researchers, and provide support to tenure-line faculty.

Distance learning in the time of the coronavirus has invited reflection on what we value in the teaching and learning of the humanities. The abrupt transition to all-online delivery has forced us to recognize and reshape the ways we meet the access and accommodation needs of educators and students across our organization. Our proposed set of activities both responds to our immediate emergency, in retaining and hiring valuable humanities staff most at-risk for layoff in the wake of the coronavirus, and supports the development of a thoughtful and deliberate “pedagogy of crisis”: critical reflection and adaptation of outstanding distance teaching in crisis into everyday humanities teaching and learning practice.
