Why I’m Teaching Online

Christopher Schaberg, who previously asserted he’d never teach online, describes why he’s now veering that way, even when he could teach face-to-face. A few years ago, I wrote an article for this site called “Why I Won’t Teach Online.” How short-sighted was that! Little did I know then that a novel coronavirus would make us all teach online — no matter how any of us felt about it. Like everyone else, I ended up teaching fully online last spring, and now I’m preparing to teach online again — or at least partly online — this semester. I look forward to meeting with my students in person again in the not-too-distant future. Probably we’ll have class outside, well spaced out and wearing masks. But in the meantime, I’ll gladly put my heart into teaching online, even though this would have been anathema to me a year ago.
